Having a clean and correctly fitted chimney cap ensures that your chimney functions properly and doesn’t allow leaks. Water is a chimney’s worst enemy. A damaged or deteriorated chimney chase top or chimney cap can lead to serious and expensive water damage. Chimney caps and chase covers can also prevent leaves, other debris, and animals from getting into your chimney flue and causing expensive damage or hazardous blockages. It’s important to have your chimney inspected annually to ensure your chimney cap or chase top is in good condition.

Benefits Of Insalling

Chimney caps & covers

  • Keep embers in, and critters out!

    A quick and inexpensive way to protect your chimney is by installing a chimney cap. It is like installing screens on your windows!

    A chimney cap allows smoke to vent while preventing the escape of sparks or embers that could start a fire on your roof or nearby greenery. Plus, a chimney cap helps keep rain, debris and curious critters from entering your chimney. Most chimney caps are made of copper or stainless steel. The cap should be sized to fit securely over the opening of your chimney.

  • Keep stuff in

    Airborne embers and sparks rising up through your chimney can pose a threat if they are allowed to exit. All it takes is a single well-placed ember landing on your roof, or floating onto dry leaves or brush to start a fire that could quickly spread. A quality chimney cap includes a spark guard to prevent the escape of these potentially dangerous materials.

  • Keep stuff out

    Water is the enemy of your chimney. Moisture can seep into cracks, separate mortar, and damage your chimney liner. And don’t even get us started about inquisitive critters! Raccoons, birds, mice, and chipmunks are great to see in theme parks or animated cartoons, but you don’t want them taking up residence in your chimney. A properly sized and secured chimney cap can help prevent excessive moisture and excessively pesky animals from getting into your chimney.

  • Why a well-maintained cap or cover is important

    Something as simple as a chimney cap or chase top is extremely important to the safety and lifespan of your chimney. These features offer several benefits when properly maintained:

    • Keep out rain and snow to prevent mold, wood rot, and other moisture damage
    • Keep birds and animals from nesting in your chimney
    • Spark arrestor on a chimney cap prevents sparks from leaving your chimney and landing on your roof or nearby combustible materials
    • Help reduce wind downdrafts that can cause smoke backup

    The keys to success when it comes to chimney caps is a quality design, proper sizing and secure installation. You can trust Bone Dry Roofing to make sure all three are done right the first time. Call us today to discuss how a chimney cap can keep your home “bone dry” and critter-free.

Designs & Types

Chase covers and lids

Stainless steel chase covers (like the one in the photo) are popular among homeowners for their low maintenance and long lifespan.

Most chase covers that come standard with pre-fabricated fireplaces are made with cheap galvanized sheet metal that rusts and will likely need replacing every 7 to 10 years. The most popular materials used to construct chimney chase tops are galvanized steel, copper, stainless steel, and aluminum.

Bone Dry Masonry recommends stainless steel chimney caps and chase covers because of their low cost and excellent durability. Stainless steel is corrosion resistant and nearly rustproof, which means stainless steel chimney caps and covers require almost no maintenance. We offer chimney covers and caps in a variety of sizes and colors and will install a chase top to match the exact specifications of your chimney chase.

Chase Top

FAQ

Chimney cap & cover faq

Chimney caps and chase covers provide similar benefits, keeping water, debris, and animals out of your chimney flue.

A chimney cap is a metal topper that covers the opening of your flue. Chimney caps also prevent burning embers from landing on your roof and other nearby flammable objects.

A chase cover generally comes standard with a pre-fabricated or factory-built fireplace. The chase cover fits over your chimney chase to seal the flue. A rusty chimney chase top can cause discoloration on your chimney.

There is no set cost for repairing a chimney top or cap. There are multiple factors that affect pricing such as, chimney height, number of stories of the house, size of the chimney, number of flues, etc.
A chimney cap is required per international building code. It protects the top of the chimney from the elements, and keeps animals out of the chimney.
