Would you ever leave anything of value to you exposed to the elements? Eventually it would become damaged, ruined, and non-functional. The same is true for your chimney and its integrated appliances.
There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing your cap:
- Do you need individual flue chimney caps?
- Would a multi-flue chimney cap suit your needs better?
- Would you prefer a metal other than stainless steel, such as copper?
- If your home has a chase box covering your chimney, do you have a chase cover?
