All Chimneys Need a Cap! Here's Why:
Stop Rain & Snow
The cap prevents rain and snow from entering the chimney. Water from rain or snow entering the chimney gradually damages the inside of the chimney. Joints between liner tiles gradually dissolve, and corrosive elements in exhaust from furnaces mix with water and slowly weaken lining. Water pooling at the base damages the chimney structure. Freezing and thawing of water causes expansion damage.
Caps with a screen mesh also keep animals out. Raccoons, squirrels, and birds often nest in chimneys. These animals can bring fleas and ticks into your home, as well as rabies, worms, and other diseases, and of course animals and their nests can clog the chimney.
In the event that you do find animals nesting in your chimney, N. Y. Metro Chimney offers humane animal removal. Our trained professionals will do everything possible to assure the integrity of your chimney and the safety of those animals that may be nesting in it.
Where certain conditions exist the cap will help prevent wind traveling down the chimney shaft.
The built-in screen on your cap reduces the amount of large ash that is normally blown into the air and onto roof tops.
Due to the high demand of high efficiency gas/oil boilers and appliances, we are now manufacturing double wall stainless steel lining systems. All sizes are available in oval & round.
