Protect your house from:
Sparks and Embers
Every year, throughout America, thousands of fires are started by burning embers that rise up the flue, exit through an uncapped chimney, and land on the roof or yard.
Water causes the greatest damage to your chimney of any of the elements. It soaks into porous bricks, eats away at the mortar, hastens the destruction of your chimney liner, and destroys the mortar crown on the top of your chimney. A chimney cap does a great job of protecting your chimney from water damage. For maximum chimney protection we recommend a multi-flue cap. That's because a multi-flue cap covers the entire chimney, not just one flue.
Birds and Animal Intruders
Even if they don't get into your living area, they may decide to take up residence in your chimney. In addition to being noisy, wild animals carry disease that can be transmitted through their droppings.
Their nests can block the flue, which can contribute to dangerous back-puffing, carbon monoxide poisoning, and chimney fires. No one wants their family exposed to that.
Guard Against Flue Blockage
Leaves and debris entering a chimney may cause a flue blockage. This can lead to fire, smoke damage, and even carbon monoxide poisoning. The Chimney Top guard against these dangers.
The single flue masonry chimney cap is designed to fasten directly to your clay flue tile liner at the top or your chimney.
Make a statement with your chimney. A decorative chimney cap customizes the look of your chimney—and transforms your roof.
Multi-flue chimney caps allow you to protect multiple, odd sized or unlined flues. They also provide protection to the entire chimney crown.
Chimneys are notorious for leaking, usually due to improperly installed or old flashing. Failing to properly protect your chimney can cause leaking problems that are costly to repair. Chimney flashing is a layer of sheet metal that is installed to ensure a connection between the chimney and the roof.
If your flashing is missing, rusted, falling out or completely covered in roofing tar, you will want to discuss with us the possibility of installing or repairing it. The best time to install new chimney flashing is during a roof replacement. That way, it will last as long as your new roofing.
Transform that big metal chimney pipe sticking out of your roof with a chimney surround that is virtually impossible to tell from brick and mortar! Our chimney surround is constructed of coated, 22-gauge steel with interlocking joints so installation is easy to handle.
There are two sizes available to fit nearly any situation you may encounter: a rectangular unit measuring 23 1/2" x 18 3/4" x 4' high, and a square unit measuring 23 1/2" x 23 1/2" x 4' high. Both units come precut to a 4/12 pitch, though they can be easily cut for another roof pitch.
Extensions are available when extra height is needed. They are 2' tall and you can add as many as two extensions.
