Chimney Cap Installation
It's really amazing that so many homes are built with uncapped chimneys. Chimney caps are more than ornamental. They serve several very important purposes.
Without a chimney cap, rain, sleet, snow and hail have nowhere to go except down the chimney, where they can cause damage to brickwork, mortar, the chimney pipe, the damper, or the stove, furnace, or fireplace. Installing a cap helps prevent damage from the elements.
In addition, birds and animals are attracted to chimneys by the warmth, and often try to build nests inside them. Sometimes they can even get into your home's living area through the chimney. A chimney cap prevents preventsbirds, raccoons, squirrels, and other wildanimals from getting into your chimney.
Finally, specialized chimney caps are available to correct draft problems caused by high winds, and some chimney caps have built-in dampers that save energy and can help reduce your heating and cooling costs.
We can install a wide variety of chimney caps to fit almost any chimney. Installation costs can be as low as between $50.00 and $100.00, depending upon the size and style of the chimney cap. For information on chimney cap installation or any of our services, please contact us.
