Three reasons every chimney needs a cap
1. Rain protection -water causes the greatest damage to your chimney of any of the elements.
It soaks into the porous bricks, eats away at the mortar, hastens the destruction of the chimney liner, and destroys the chimney crown. A chimney cap does a great job of protecting your chimney from water damage. For maximum chimney protection we recommend a multi-flue cap. That's because a multi-flue cap covers the entire chimney, not just one flue. More chimney damage is
caused by the lack of a chimney cap than any other source. Rain causes premature deterioration to the chimney interior and can damage metal fireboxes and dampers. It can also erode flue tiles and mortar joints, causing them to crumble and leave dangerous
cracks and blockages.
2. Animal protection -one of the great sources of danger to homeowners is the threat of disease from animals like raccoons, squirrels, birds, and rodents that make their home in chimneys. A well-made chimney cap will keep those animals out of your home forever. Sturdy mesh and a strong lid keep even the most determined critters at bay. Animals see all uncapped chimney as an open invitation to move in -unfortunately, they bring with them a variety of evils. Birds and animals carry diseases such as rabies and histoplasmosis. Bird droppings combine with rain to create a terrible smell. And, once a squirrel or raccoon gets into your chimney, it may also enter your home where it can cause untold damage to furniture, drapes, and carpets, Animals nesting in your chimney are also an unnerving source of chatter and commotion. And, their nests can result in dangerous flue blockages.
3. Spark protection -the mesh screen protects your home from sparks emitted from your chimney. That means less danger of a fire caused by stray sparks from your fireplace or woodstove. A chimney without a proper cap may allow airborne embers to ignite shingles, leaves, trees, or grass.
