While they may only be a peripheral piece to your home’s chimney system, a chimney cap is still vital to the efficiency and safety of your home’s fireplace. Not to be confused with a chimney crown or chase cover, chimney caps typically appear as a metal structure that covers the opening on the very top of a chimney.
A few key benefits to having chimney cap installation done on your home include moisture protection, prevention against cold drafts entering the home, roof protection against sparks and embers that rise from your home’s fireplace, and prevention of animal invasion.
