3 Important Reasons Why You Need a Chimney Cap


Is a chimney cap absolutely necessary? If you don’t already have one, you may start asking yourself this question when you realize that a lot of your neighbors have opted to go without. Truth be told, the reason why so many people don’t have a chimney cap is that they don’t realize just how important it is. In today’s post, your roofing experts at Bone Dry Roofing – West share three reasons why they’re absolutely essential.

Chimney Cap

It protects your home from water damage. The main function of most roofing components is to prevent water from getting inside your house. A chimney cap is no different. Without it, rain and snow can fall down your chimney. When moisture makes its way inside your chimney, it can eventually corrode or warp your damper and weaken your flue lining, which puts your house at risk of fire when you use your fireplace.

It helps keep out pests. Talk to a neighbor that doesn’t have a chimney cap installed and they’ll probably have a story about a bird or rodent making its way down their chimney. While it does make for a funny story, it’s not something you want to experience. Pests can cause damage to your home’s internal components and can also bring diseases. Installing a chimney cap is a simple yet effective way to keep them out.

It helps prevent roof fires. Chimney caps are not only effective at keeping things out, but also keeping things in. Without a chimney cap, hot embers from your fireplace can make their way to your roof, causing it to catch fire.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!
We are so happy with the service we received from Bone Dry Roofing! Nick came out quickly and did an inspection and a quick estimate for us! The repairs were done quickly! Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
