What Is A Chimney Cap?

Let's start out with what a chimney cap is first before going over repairing it. In general, a chimney has three main parts: the flue, the lining and the cap. The flue is the part of the chimney that goes up through your roof. The lining is the material that lines the inside of the flue and protects it from heat and corrosion during use of the fireplace. And lastly, the cap, which is the final line of defense against water and pests getting into your chimney.

A chimney cap is a small piece of metal, wood, or another material that fits over the top opening of your masonry stove's flue. Basically, the chimney cap is a cover that sits on top of the chimney stack and helps to protect the chimney from weather elements and critters, like squirrels, birds, and any other animal that might want to make its way inside the flue. The cap is also effective at keeping out debris, like sticks and leaves, which can create a fire hazard if they make their way inside the flue.

Why You Should Repair Your Chimney Cap

Chimney caps are built to protect the fireplace so you can use it for years without hesitation. These caps are pretty easy to install and will not take too much time or money to repair, which is why you should repair your chimney cap at the first sign of damage. There are certain problems that occur with these parts over an extended period of use, which may require a replacement or repair job. Every year, you should have a professional team inspect your chimney to make sure everything is in good order. You do not want to risk a fire with a damaged chimney cap. Good thing for you the team at Guaranteed Home Improvement has years of experience repairing chimney caps for homeowners living in the greater Boston area. 

Offers Protection from Environment

Another reason to repair a chimney cap is because they help protect against the environment. Many homeowners do not think about the environment when they think about their chimney, but they should. A chimney cap done right protects your home's air quality by preventing animals and debris from entering your fireplace system through the flue.

The chimney cap also keeps all rainwater out of your firebox, which is great since it will prevent any rust from appearing. A well-maintained chimney cap can also extend the life of your fireplace and chimney.

These chimney caps are mounted directly to your chimney crown using concrete screws (tap-cons). The multi-flue chimney cap can be sized to fit securely around the flue openings, or it can be extended to cover the entire chimney. Custom sizes, styles, and mounting options are available.

Wind Resistant Chimney Caps

For those who are experiencing downdrafts and back-puffing with your chimney, there is a solution. Whether you have a masonry or metal chimney, the VacuStack will cure most wind-related back-puffing problems. This is due to something called the Venturi effect. It is a process that utilizes wind movement hitting the cap that increases the strength in positive draft by sucking the exhaust and fireplace smoke out of the chimney. It is a simple and easy solution to issues caused by wind loading or wind-induced downdrafts.
