Why your chimney cap is important
Your Triad or Triangle property needs a reliable chimney cap all year long
A chimney cap is installed on top of the chimney’s flue and basically acts like a shield to prevent things from outside from getting in your chimney. Most chimney caps are made from either metal, stainless steel, or in some cases, copper. They are designed to be strong enough to protect your chimney throughout whatever forces mother nature sends its way.
It’s not something many people think about but without a chimney cap, your chimney is at high-risk from nature’s elements, especially when a storm hits. Rainwater is one of the biggest problems that can cause damage to a chimney. The moisture can cause a lot of damage to the inside of your chimney, which can result in expensive repairs.
Water damage isn’t the only risk a chimney cap protects your home from. A lot of debris can fall in there as well. When the wind picks up, leaves, dirt, and other unwanted items can fall into an open chimney flue. These items can begin to clog your chimney, making it a serious fire hazard.
This isn’t the worst of it though. Did you know that an open chimney flue is just an invitation for critters to enter your home? To a lot of wild animals, like squirrels and racoons, a chimney looks like it could be a could home. This can lead to a lot of problems for the homeowners and even put their health at risk. Wild animals can easily bring diseases and other problems into your home.
