Inspecting the Top of Your Chimney is Critical
Every year, many homeowners across our region use their fireplaces to both stay warm and to help create ambiance in their houses. During this time, their chimney system can take quite a beating. From the freeze-and-thaw cycle to general wear and tear, there’s a lot of annual maintenance that a chimney will need. One of the first things these homeowners will do once spring hits is schedule a chimney inspection. During these inspections, our CSIA-certified technicians will be on the roof looking at the condition of the chimney crown, cap and masonry. A custom full-width chimney cap may be recommended to cover the entire top providing protection from the elements.
Types Of Chimney Caps
Just like each of our homes is different, chimney caps come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and styles. Custom caps can be fabricated to match the style of your home and provide a high degree of protection while looking great too.
Custom chimney caps are easy to install and can save you significant money long-term. When you choose a full-width cap, it will cover the entire top of your chimney, helping to protect your crown and prolong its life.
If you currently have a flue cap cover (only covers the top of the flue entrance) that is similar to wearing a baseball cap in a torrential downpour rather than having an umbrella!
We install custom chimney caps in the entire Greater Pittsburgh area including Bethel Park, Glenshaw, Cranberry, Wexford, Beaver Falls, Uniontown, Belle Vernon, Waynesburg, Greensburg, Washington, Monroeville and south to Morgantown, Fairmont and Clarksburgh WV region.
Your First Line Of Defense: A Full Width Chimney Cap
Why is a chimney cap so important? That’s easy: it’s your first line of defense. A functional, non-damaged chimney cap is vitally important to the safe operation of your fireplace system.
Some of the benefits of a chimney cap include:
- Redirecting water out of and away from your flue and chimney crown
- Keeping various types of obstructions such as animals and other debris out of your chimney
- Optimizing your airflow while minimizing downdraft
- Stopping hot embers from exiting your flue and starting a fire
