Does My Chimney Need A Cap?
Yes it does. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventative measure that a homeowner can employ to prevent water penetrations and damage to their chimney..
Chimneys have one or more large openings (flues) at the top that collect rain water and funnel it directly to the chimney interior.
A strong, well designed cap not only keeps this water out,but will also prevent birds and animals from entering and nesting in the chimney.
Caps also function as spark arrestors, preventing sparks from landing on the roof or other nearby combustible material.
We will install any type of cap, but we recommend stainless steel or copper, because of better quality and durability. Many of these caps carry lifetime warranty. We are proud to offer Whitecaps chimney caps.
Remember, a chimney without a cap is like a house without a roof.
