We Install Attractive, Highly Effective Chimney Caps
Here at ChimneyTEK, we strive to prevent the damaging effects water can have on chimneys and provide homeowners throughout Maryland with the highest quality chimney products and services possible. Our goal is to help protect and preserve the chimney systems of our neighbors so that they can be enjoyed without unnecessary risk and unnecessary cost. That’s why we proudly install quality chimney caps from HomeSaver.
HomeSaver’s Gelco chimney caps offer superior protection and an attractive finish to chimneys of all sizes and styles – and they’re long-lasting and affordable to boot! But what kind of protection do they provide?
Types of Chimney Cap Protection
Moisture isn’t something you ever want the interior of your chimney system to come into contact with – especially in large amounts! But without a quality chimney cap, a chimney will undoubtedly battle water each time it rains, snows, or sleets – and where there’s water in a chimney, there’s damage. Water is responsible for some of the most extensive chimney damage and the most expensive chimney repairs, but a chimney cap can protect you against the heartache and the money loss associated with a chimney leak.
Many homeowners don’t realize that the chimney cap also works to prevent animals and birds from entering the chimney flue and nesting. Once you have animals in your chimney, it can be difficult to get rid of them, especially if they are federally protected Chimney Swifts. Prevent the damage and the annoyance by having a chimney cap installed before they make their way in.
Sparks will naturally rise up in the smoke as it makes its way up through the chimney and out of the home. But what happens when those sparks exit the chimney and land on the roof of the home or on nearby brush? The answer: you could have a rapidly spreading house or property fire on your hands. With a Gelco cap, you don’t have to worry about that. These caps come with spark guards and can keep sparks from igniting nearby combustibles.
