Keeping Moisture Away

If you have a masonry chimney, then you know how damaging water can be. Masonry easily absorbs excess moisture, causing your brickwork and mortar to break down and crumble at a rapid pace. Along with this, water in your chimney brings about mold and rot, and it causes your metal components to rust and break down, too. You’ll experience clogs, crumbling brick, and a lot more issues, all of which cause your system to function less efficiently.

On top of this, using a chimney that needs repairs puts your home and loved ones at risk. Minimize your risk of experiencing these problems by having a chimney cap installed! Check out the many other benefits of owning one below.

Other Benefits Of Chimney Caps

While keeping water away is one of the main purposes chimney caps serve, they do a whole lot more than that, too. Another benefit they offer is keeping dirt and other debris out of your flue. When leaves, twigs, and other items are allowed to accumulate, they can cause some pretty stubborn clogs and blockages. This isn’t good for ventilation and could cause smoke and other toxins to back up into your home.

If you’ve been having air flow issues, then this could be the culprit! Our expert team will remove any build up in your system, then get your chimney cap installed and situated, so you won’t have to face this issue again down the line.

Chimney caps also keep animals from entering and getting stuck or building nests. Raccoons, birds, and other critters can trigger some big issues, stinking up your fireplace and filling it with harmful materials that cause deterioration. Along with this, chimney caps are known for stopping stray sparks dead in their tracks, so they don’t land on your roof or adjacent woodwork, and they block downdrafts from swooping through your system, too. All in all, they make a big contribution to your chimney’s performance and any home without one will suffer in the long run.
