Give your chimney the protection it deserves.
You wear a raincoat or use an umbrella to protect yourself when it rains, and you keep your car in your garage or under a cover to protect it from the rain and other weather. Shouldn’t your chimney get the same kind of protection from the rain and other elements? That’s why we offer rain caps for your chimney in the Cartersville, Georgia area.
Rain caps are just about what they sound like and more. They protect your chimney from the rain, but they also serve to further protect your chimney from animal infestations, discourage backdrafts, and even protect your roof from escaping sparks. This makes rain caps the perfect solution to preventing water damage, infestations, and roof fires. They don’t exactly make your chimney waterproof, but when paired with our waterproofing measures and chimney shrouds, your chimney can, in fact, become waterproof.
Rain caps can also add an aesthetic appeal to your chimney. We can match your caps to your preferences or to the style of your roof. Some of our options include copper, galvanized metal, and decorative caps.
Another important thing to note about rain caps is that they don’t last forever and are never 100% guaranteed against the elements. It’s important to schedule regular chimney inspections, so we can check that your rain cap is in top quality and working just how it’s supposed to. This way, you won’t run any risks of potential fires or water damage even with a rain cap on.
Give your chimney the protection it deserves with a rain cap. Just give us a call today at Swept Away Chimney to schedule an appointment to get your cap installed.
