Protect Your Chimney with Chimney Caps

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 31, 2012

The weather is warming up, and the wildlife is out in full force. This is the time of year to do some chimney maintenance. Your chimney looks like the perfect home for many birds and small animals.

Chimney caps are an integral part of the venting system for your fireplace and the venting system is an integral part of your overall fireplace system. Along with animals, the weather affects a chimney system the most. If chimneys are not correctly sealed, moisture gets into the cracks and seams and can ruin the chimney.

Brick chimneys are extremely susceptible. This is where chimney caps can provide extra protection. Chimney caps protect against all types of weather that can erode a chimney. Stainless steel chimney caps can really prolong the structural integrity of a chimney.

Birds and other animals are also harmful to your chimney system, all kinds of animals make their homes their.

The spring and summer is the perfect time of year to perform chimney maintenance while your chimney is not in service. If chimney caps are not in place the risk of damage from weather and animals is dramatically increased. Contact Fireplace Showcase for information on chimney caps.
