Flue Caps are incredibly important to the overall health and safety of your home.
They serve four important functions:
- They Keep Out Critters! Birds love to nest in flues, squirrels sit on chimneys, and raccoons will make your chimney home!
- They Keep Out Rain! Water is responsible for over 80% of all chimney problems.
- They Keep Out Debris! Leaves, twigs and debris can drop down into your flue and become a fire hazard.
- They Act as a Spark Arrestor. They help contain errant sparks from exiting the flue to surrounding combusitible surfaces like your roof or overhanging trees.
So do not hesitiate to ask us to install or replace a flue or chimney cap on each of your open flues!!
