Rain caps prevent animals and water from entering your home. They come in different sizes and shapes. Some are for downdraft and smoke problems, we also do custom caps and stainless steel.
With the number of elements, not to mention animals, that can find their way into your chimneys, it only makes perfect sense that you would consider getting a chimney rain cap for the top of your chimney.
A rain cap can prevent water from seeping into your chimney. Moisture can easily enter the flue whenever it rains if you do not have a cap on. This would then cause water to get inside your attic or house as it runs down the bricks. Of course, this moisture can be very damaging to your ceiling and walls.
On top of that, a chimney rain cap can prevent animals from entering your chimney and causing serious clogging. Not only will these animals block your chimney. If they die in there, you can only imagine the foul odour they’d cause. It’s just more sensible to keep them out in the first place.
These caps can also stop downdrafts that can cause your house to be filled with smoke. They can be especially beneficial if you live in windy areas and need to make your home more energy efficient. You can prevent cold blasts of air if you have a chimney rain cap on.
