The Functions Of A Cap
As mentioned before, chimney caps act as a protective cover for the top of your chimney. They can be black or silver in color and have four major functions:
- Preventing sparks and embers from your fire from getting out of the chimney and onto your roof or to nearby structures where they could start a fire
- Keeping rain out of your chimney. If rain gets into your chimney, it can cause a wide range of problems. When it mixes with creosote, it can cause the mortar of your chimney to erode. It will also eat away at the metal parts inside the chimney, such as the damper or chimney liner, causing them to rust.
- Preventing squirrels, birds, and rodents from nesting inside your chimney.
- Stopping leaves, branches and other debris from getting inside your chimney.
