How to Tell that a Chimney Cap Should Be Replaced

People do not normally have a good view of their chimney caps because they are located high up on the roof. However, it is important to be aware of when they are beginning to fail, since many consequences could come from a malfunctioning chimney cap. A cap that has come loose from the crown or completely blown off must certainly be replaced. Another issue that would require a cap replacement would be if it is starting to show signs of rust. Although the cap may technically be intact, corrosion from too much moisture limits its overall effectiveness. When the mesh inside has begun to deteriorate from creosote or acidic minerals in the rain, it can start to rip, allowing debris and bugs inside. 

Of course, it can be difficult to spot these signs from far below the roof. This is why it is a good idea to schedule regular checkups with our technicians to examine the chimneys more closely. Our specialists at Superior Roofing Company of Georgia can prevent downdrafts, pest intrusion, and even dangerous fires with our comprehensive cap inspections.
