What Are the Benefits of a Having a New Chimney Cap Installed?

Chimney caps are not necessarily the most obvious features of a home, but they are certainly important. Anyone who is wondering whether these additions are worth it should consider the great advantages that come from a secure installation.

Having new chimney caps set up will:

  • Prevent pests from infiltrating the roof: All kinds of creatures like to use the chimney to get inside a home for food and shelter, including squirrels, bats, rats, and birds. Even raccoons and opossums might try to come inside, unless there is a chimney cap.
  • Stop fires from occurring: While the fireplace should of course have a fire, it would be dangerous to have a fire in the actual chimney. If a spark or ember drifts up into the flue, it can cause a fire to break out on the rest of the roof. A chimney cap uses mesh to protect the home from dangerous fires. 
  • Protect the chimney from water: If too much moisture accumulates in the chimney, it will lead to a lot of issues. First, the chimney’s interior may begin to erode from the rain and dew. Damp environments host mildew and mold, which are hazardous to breathe. 

I can not say enough about this company from the initial estimate to completion! Terry came out to evaluate the project and was very friendly and efficient. David, the project manager, and Wilfred’s crew were amazing! They not only did a great job replacing our roof but left our property in the same condition they found it. I would recommend Superior Roofing to anyone for roof repairs.

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.
