Chimney caps are used to prevent rain, snow, leaves and animals from entering the chimney. Caps also prevent sparks from leaving the chimney. We typically use a stainless steel mesh cap with a rain hood.
There are endless options when choosing a chimney cap. We have standard stainless steel caps stocked in our vehicles. We can also order different styles, sizes or custom made caps as needed. You can also special order copper or galvanized caps, as well as more architecturally designed caps, such as European Copper Pots.
Standard Chimney Cap
Rounded Chimney Caps
A flue stretcher increases the effective height of the flue. The flue stretcher addresses two problems:
Negative House Pressure – Adding the flue stretcher to the upstairs flue distances smoke from the downward pull of the downstairs flue.
Drafts – Increasing height and putting the flue opening above roofs and other nearby structures will decrease drafts.
Don’t forget about the ever-popular Chimalator! This is a top mount damper cap that can be sealed airtight with the turn of a handle from inside the fireplace. No more heat or air conditioning getting lost up your chimney! No more downdraft! No more entry for rain or pests!
