Install Quality Chimney Caps To Protect Your Chimney System

Without a chimney cap, you’re essentially leaving a gaping hole in your roof. By properly sizing and installing the chimney cap, water cannot enter the chimney. Ensuring that your crown, flashing, and damper are functioning properly, and applying waterproofing sealant, also helps a great deal.

A chimney’s most common cause of destruction is water. Even the tiniest crack in your system will eventually lead to corroding dampers, crumbling mortar joints, and slowly destroying flue liners.

Chimney caps come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, including stainless steel and copper. A chimney cap must be the right size and shape to provide all of the benefits it’s intended to provide. Among the many chimney caps available, you’ll also find chimney caps designed to solve animal problems or problems caused by wind. Apart from being functional, chimney caps can also enhance the aesthetics of your home. Stainless steel and copper caps can add a touch of style to your home’s exterior. The Smoke Alert team can help you choose the right product for your situation and requirements.

Factory-built chimney systems typically include a chase built around the chimney pipe, with a chase pan on top to protect it. We are skilled at providing chase pan replacements when old ones fail by installing a beautiful and far more durable new one.

We Can Replace Your Damaged Chase Pan

Chases are often covered with siding or brick/stone panels to mimic traditional masonry. On top of the chase, a chase pan, usually made of galvanized steel, stainless steel or copper, protects it. Chase pans serve the same function as chimney crowns, keeping water away from the flue of a masonry chimney. Leaks will result if it begins to rust or fails.

If your chimney cap or chase pan is showing signs of damage, we can replace it with a beautiful and durable new one, bringing a fresh look to your home and thoroughly protecting your chimney.
