Problems Caused by a Damaged Chimney Cap
Once you recognize that your chimney cap may be damaged, you need to get it repaired as soon as possible. Our experienced chimney contractors in Baltimore provide speedy, affordable repairs that protect you, your family, and your home throughout winter. It makes sense to have your chimney cap repaired when the damage is still small; otherwise the damage could cause thousands of dollars in repairs that could have been prevented.
A properly installed and intact chimney cap functions as a safety valve for the chimney. Although it’s small in size, it’s important in the uses it performs. For example, a working chimney cap prevents animals such as squirrels and birds from coming down the chimney into your home. If their nests are built in your chimney, they may block the flow and cause harmful gases to back up into your home. In addition it keeps moisture out and ensures that no burning embers escape to start a house fire.
