METAL CHIMNEY CAPS

METAL CHIMNEY CAPS KEEP OUT MOISTURE

Is your chimney falling apart? While cement caps are a common repair for cracked chimneys, its rare they last longer than 2 years. This is because cement does not have the ability to stay strong against expansion and movement. Steel does. Therefore we often recommend putting in a metal caps, which provide long term durability without sacrificing style or beauty!

The custom formed, galvanized steel caps are available in different paint or pre-finished options. And we offer stainless steel as well. With metal caps you can't go wrong.
