For most homeowners, the importance of chimney caps goes unnoticed, but the truth actually is that chimney caps play a crucial role in any chimney system and not every property owner has one installed. If you don’t currently have a chimney cap, find out how chimney caps can benefit your property and chimney.
At Golden Gate Chimney, we believe that all chimneys should be covered with a chimney cap. Here are some of the top reasons why you need a chimney cap:
A chimney cap will prevent water from entering your chimney. Over time, rainwater can damage chimneys that have stainless steel liners, and simultaneously deteriorate chimney dampers and mortar joints. Rainwater can also damage the structure of your chimney and that excess moisture from water can also lead to mold and mildew.
Keep Out Animals
A customized chimney cap will prevent animals like birds, raccoons, and squirrels from entering your chimney and becoming trapped. With a chimney cap professionally installed you’ll not worry about the animal intrusion. A chimney cap is an important barrier to those intruders.
Prevent Debris Build-Up
When your chimney is not covered by a cap, branches, leaves, twigs and other yard debris can enter the chimney. If not removed, this debris build-up can cause a potential chimney fire or a great deal of smoke.
Chimney Caps Are Necessary
When it comes to keeping moisture and critters away from your chimney, a chimney cap becomes a necessity. The number one reason to have a chimney cap installed in your chimney is to keep out moisture.
