The Importance of Chimney Caps

masonry chimney with birdsChimney caps act as your chimney’s gatekeeper. Caps rest at the top of your system and prevent elements such as debris, animals, and water from entering. Chimney caps are fairly affordable, durable, and prevent major, costly repairs down the road. We sell caps in long lasting and high quality copper and stainless steel with available accessories such as spark guards and screens.

One of the most important tasks of a chimney cap is keeping water out. Without a chimney cap, your chimney is at risk for water damage, which is costly and hazardous to your home and family. There are several noticeable signs of water damage. If you hear a constant drip in your chimney, you probably have a leak. More visible signs include rust, flaking, and deterioration of chimney components or masonry. Finally, there may be unsightly water stains on your walls or ceiling.

Other Ways to Prevent Water Damage

In addition to chimney caps, C&C Chimney offers a variety of other services to help prevent water damage. Water damage is also caused by missing or broken components such as the flashing, crown, and chase cover. The flashing is the metal at the intersection of your chimney and roof, and the crown and chase covers also sit at the top with the cap. We use ChimneySaver water repellent to coat the inside of your chimney. When you call us, we guarantee that your chimney is prepared to withstand the heavy April rains!
