Prevent Water Intrusion with Chimney Crown Repair
The cap is essential for two reasons. First, it prevents rain from accessing the chimney flue. Secondly, it helps keep birds and other small animals from entering the chimney flue during the seasons of non-use. Chimney caps are typically made of metals like aluminum, steel, or steel alloy.
The need for chimney crown repair and chimney cap repair or replacement is not an uncommon task for homeowners with fireplace chimneys. Because chimney cap maintenance can prevent water damage and leaking, the minimal expense of repair can save you a ton of money in the long run!
Protecting Your Chimney’s Interior
Having broken, cracked, or missing chimney crowns and caps allows for a free flow of rainwater down into the chimney, which leads directly into the interior of the home. Chimney crowns and caps need to be structurally sound in order to avoid water damage that can add up to devastating costs. The crown and cap can become damaged due to:
- Low quality
- Tree limbs
- Ice and snow
- High winds
