Style #2 Chimney Cap

The #2 chimney cap has every advantage of #1, but can be used on any chimney (wood, stucco, stone, or brick). Standing seams are for looks only. We can make any cap out of any metal to your specifications. To keep out invaders the caps have 18 gauge hardware cloth under the lid.

Chimney Cap Installation Procedures

There are two methods of installation of a masonry crowned chimney cap.


Attach wire to the base. Drill a hole in the brick or stone (not mortar) for concrete anchor down at least two rows. Wrap wire around anchor and push it in through the hole. Hammer the anchor until anchor head is flush. Cut off remaining wire left over.


Drill hole in cap skirt to anchor size. Put chimney cap on chimney. Drill the brick or stone where hole in cap has been drilled. Input anchor from outside the chimney cap skirt to the chimney drilled hole. Hammer anchor in securing the chimney cap to the chimney.

Only recommended if chimney is solid as a rock! If not solid the wind will vibrate the anchor out, not securing the chimney cap anymore.
