Every chimney is different, therefore the caps will vary in size, style, and material. The most important factor for installation is high-quality, sturdy caps. Our suppliers only source the highest-quality material for cap constriction.

The Many Benefits of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps not only prevent animals and rain from entering your home, but they also prevent downdrafts from affecting your home. Downdrafts can cause your home to fill up with smoke. In areas that are prone to high winds, this can be especially dangerous. Your home will become much more energy-efficient with the use of a chimney cap. Cold air will not be able to enter your home when a chimney cap has been installed.

As stated previously, birds and other animals are attracted to chimneys. The main reason for this is due to their warmth. Birds will make a nest in a chimney that does not have a cap. This will cause major obstruction to the chimney and clog it. Other animals can enter uncapped chimneys including raccoons and squirrels. These animals are pests and will cause an issue with your home. Wild animals can die if they are trapped in the chimney which can cause a decaying odor and other infestations. Wild animals are known to carry harmful diseases, bacteria and pathogens. To avoid this scenario altogether, installing a chimney cap is the best protection possible.

Another benefit of chimney caps is their wire mesh. The wire mesh is a spark deflector which is extremely important for dry areas such as Kansas. 

How Chimney Caps are Made

Chimney caps can be made out of a few different materials. As stated previously, we offer black chimney caps, copper chimney caps, and stainless steel chimney caps. Authentic copper and stainless steel are used in the manufacturing process. The process of manufacturing is always taken seriously. We only work with the highest quality suppliers to provide you with the best final product. The metal must be of industrial-grade to withstand all types of weather conditions.

Just to put the situation into perspective, chimney caps experience the outdoor climate at all times. From rain to intense sun, your chimney caps endure it all. This is why the construction of the cap must be substantial and tested for effectiveness and safety. The mesh on the chimney cap allows for proper airflow but also prevents all types of animals from entering. Without the mesh feature of the cap, animals would easily be able to enter your chimney.

Copper and stainless steel are both metals that are known to resist deterioration. This makes them long-lasting options for chimney cap protection. One of the main benefits of the caps is their longevity. With high-quality construction, black chimney caps, copper chimney caps, and stainless steel chimney caps are 100% guaranteed to be effective.

How to Care for Chimney Caps
