Animals have a direct pathway into your house without a chimney cap. A chimney cap eliminates this problem, preventing not only animals, but debris and other material from entering your home.
The chimney cap prevents embers from going out of the chimney onto the roof, which decreases the likelihood of having a roof fire.
Excess water in your chimney can lead to issues such as damage to your chimney liner, dampers, and chimney mortar joints. Moisture can also damage your walls and ceiling. This can lead to mold growth which can spread to your home and become an even bigger problem. By installing a chimney cap, you’ll prevent these costly repairs that may occur without one.
