What is a Chimney Cap?
A Chimney Cap is a covering for a chimney that shelters the opening from rain, snow, animals, and birds, while permitting smoke and gasses to escape. Chimney caps can be manufactured from steel, stainless steel, copper, and aluminum. The most popular sheet metal used to manufacture chimney caps are stainless steel and black painted steel, while almost any type of metal can be used.
Copper chimney caps can add some rustic style to almost any structure while a stainless steel chimney cap is less susceptible to rust from the effects of rain, wind and smoke. Chimney caps feature side screening or venting to allow gasses to escape while keeping birds and small animals out of the chimney.
Chimney caps are normally mounted onto the chimney with screws at the base tight against the flue tile. Calebs can customize your chimney cap in the even you need to mount from the inside or at an angle.
