Dampers and Caps

A chimney cap has many functions; it protects your fireplace by not allowing rain and snow to get inside your flue passage which can cause of deterioration and expensive repairs. A chimney cap will also keep out animals such as birds, squirrels, and raccoons. The two most common caps installed are stainless steel and copper caps with animal guards.

We install only the highest quality of Stainless Steel chimney caps that all come with a lifetime warranty.

Dampers are very important to your wallet. Dampers are what seal off your flue to keep heat in and cold air out when your fireplace is not in use. Did you know leaving your damper open is like having a window open all winter that is twice the size of your fireplace opening. We replace damaged and outdated dampers with a top sealing high efficiency damper. Our dampers help to eliminate cold air drafts by the fireplace and have a 100% air tight seal at the top of the fireplace flue.
