Chimney Caps – PFC

Miriam Webster will tell you that a chimney cap is a device fitted to the top of a chimney to improve the draft by presenting an exit aperture to the leeward. But what does that mean? A chimney cap is your first line of defense. Chimney caps are one of the most important components of your fireplace system because of the way they protect the rest of the chimney and flue. Without a working chimney cap, animals, debris, and moisture can all freely enter the flue. Likewise, chimney caps help prevent sparks and embers from flying out onto the roof and causing accidental fires. A proper chimney cap is one that shelters and protects the entire masonry crown footprint and all terminations, with a screen to keep our pests and debris.

90% of the repairs we provide our customers is repair to chimneys above the roof line.
