What you probably didn’t know is that fireplace chimney caps keep wildlife from making their home in your chimney. Without a chimney cap or a damaged chimney cap, it allows wildlife like birds, raccoons, opossums, rats, squirrels and other animals that can climb to enter your chimney. It’s advised that an inspection of your chimney cap be handled during your fireplace cleaning inspection.
If you want to have a home that looks as great on the outside as it does on the inside, then install a copper chimney cap. As a homeowner, you might not spend a lot of time looking at your home’s rooftop, but anyone passing by can see its chimney stack. Caps on chimneys provide a vital function in addition to looking attractive, and only an expert should install the device. When a cap is fitted incorrectly on a chimney stack, it is dangerous for a building’s occupants because lethal gases can fill attic or wall spaces to enter rooms to make people ill. Few technicians understand how to make a copper chimney cap because it is a specialized process that involves making something that is beautiful and functional.
You can get a chimney cap made of various materials such as stainless steel and aluminum. However, if you want what experts define as top-of-the-line, you want a custom copper chimney cap to rest above your home. Indisputably, copper brings polished beauty whether you clean it regularly or allow it to go through natural oxidation.
Having a chimney cap is not just to keep out critters and birds. A chimney cap should prevent moisture from entering the chimney flue to stop deterioration of the flue and even the exterior of the chimney.
