Chimneys are a great addition to a home. And when you have a chimney, you need to have a chimney cap, too. Chimney caps are used to control the sparks that might flare up from the fireplace below. There are traditional chimney caps that you can choose from, but there are also custom chimney caps that create a unique look for your chimney.
- Decorative caps: You can have a chimney cap that is functional as well as visually appealing. Decorative caps also prevent moisture and pests from entering your chimney. You can choose from a wide variety of colors, styles, and designs.
- Copper caps: Looking for a sleek, bold, and shiny cap for your chimney? Copper caps can be formed in different styles to suit your tastes. Like all copper material, these caps might turn green over time, but if you have your chimney cap regularly cleaned, you’ll be able to maintain the brilliant luster.
- Galvanized metal: When it comes to less expensive chimney cap material, galvanized metal is a great option. These caps typically last around five years, which make them a great option for those who are looking for affordable, short-term custom chimney caps.
- Draft-inducing caps: These caps help facilitate the airflow through your chimney. They work by manipulating the wind to go around the chimney cap. This is a great way to decrease static pressure and the effects of the wind on your chimney.
There are many ways to customize your chimney caps. Reach out to us today here at Swept Away Chimney for more information.
