Your chimney cap is vital to your chimney. There are different shapes and sizes, depending on the chimney you have. They are typically made of metal such as copper or galvanized steel. They may look different and be made of different materials, but one thing they have in common is the need to be inspected regularly. A Noble Sweep can replace a chimney cap if it has problems.
Chimney Cap Inspection
When you have your chimney inspected, the chimney cap should be included in that. If the cap becomes clogged or loose, it can keep your chimney from operating the way it should. When it is not working properly, things can get in your chimney that shouldn’t. Some things we check include:
- Loose screws
- Chimney cap assembly
- Metal mesh
- Clogged turbines
If the mesh becomes clogged or starts to separate from the chimney, animals such as squirrels can easily enter the chimney. When there are severe issues, you may need to have your chimney cap replaced. If you are not sure what shape yours is in, give A Noble Sweep a call. We also provide things like gas fireplace log replacement. Keep your home safe from chimney fires by maintaining your chimney and the chimney cap.
