What is the purpose?

A chimney cap has several purposes, which include:

  • A chimney cap will prevents sparks from getting out of your chimney and onto your roof.  The chimney cap will keep your home from fires.
  • A chimney cap prevents birds, squirrels, and other animals from entering the chimney.
  • A chimney cap will prevent leaves and limbs from entering your chimney.
  • A chimney cap keeps rain from entering your chimney.  Water that gets inside the chimney can cause metal parts to rust.

How can you tell when you need a new one?

There are a few signs that let you know you need a new chimney cap.  If you are noticing a draft in the room where your chimney is at, then this is a sign that you need a new chimney cap.  If there are birds, raccoons or squirrels in your chimney, then this is also a sign that your current chimney cap is damaged, and you need a new chimney cap.

What happens if it isn’t replaced? What effect would that have on your chimney?

If you don’t replace your chimney cap when it is damaged, then water is the main problem.  Water will enter your chimney and it will damage the inside of your chimney.  Water will rust the lining and all metal parts.  Over time, the damage will eventually destroy your chimney, which will be costly to the homeowner to repair.

What is the lifespan?

The lifespan of a chimney cap can vary.  Some of the galvanized steel chimney caps can last up to five years, but stainless steel and copper chimney caps can last up to thirty years.

What is the price range?

Chimney caps are very affordable.  Chimney caps can start at around thirty dollars, and go up from there.  The type of chimney cap will determine the price.

What are the different styles?

There are many different styles of chimney caps.  There are square, multi-flue rectangle, round, lock-top, copper, steel, and stainless steel.  Chimney caps come in a style, color and design to match nearly all homes.
