Your chimney cap sits on top of the chimney crown, and besides adding to the house’s aesthetic, serves several functions. The ‘lid’ closes up the flue that conducts the smoke, ash, and carbon monoxide from the burning wood and keeps them from getting to the rest of your house. But, with the opening closed, your home is also protected from rain, animals, and fires. When it comes to your home you want to hire the best Long Island chimney cap installers in the industry.
Long Island Chimney Cap Installers
Here are some of the reasons why you should consider installing chimney caps:
Protection From Rain Damage:
The cap keeps rainwater from flowing down to your fireplace. Rain water could not only put out your fire, but it may also cause structural damage that could rust the dampers and the firebox and weaken the brick and mortar wall, ceiling, and mantle around your fireplace. Water damage could bring down the entire structure. Our Suffolk & Nassau County chimney cap installers are fully licensed, insured and can handle all industry situations.
