With a slight dose of fanciful imagination, can you hear your chimney asking, “How do I look in this cap?” Old Smokey’s can’t claim ever to have heard any portion of a house speak, but we can supply real-world answers to questions about chimney caps.
Questions — and answers — about chimney caps consider both form and function. A chimney cap serves as a valuable tool to protect everything below it: your chimney, its lining, the damper, the flue, the fireplace — and ultimately the people under your roof.
Chimney Caps Offer Year-Round Protection
Make sure your chimney sports a proper cap all year-round. We offer caps in the following options to ensure you can top off your chimney with style and substance:
- stainless steel
- galvanized black steel
We also offer a range of sizes and shapes. Whether its shape is square, rectangular, oval or round, whether it is fancy or plain, you can bet the experts at Old Smokey’s will help you make the right choice.
You’ll want to combine aesthetics and protection to safeguard against rain, snow, sleet, ice, debris, critters, and random plastic grocery bags (admittedly far-fetched and unlikely). Quality chimney caps also prevent creosote buildup and stop moisture intrusion, both of which can damage chimney linings, bricks, and mortar.

Proper installation is required for your chimney cap to function correctly. It needs to be mounted securely and evenly so it can firmly guard your chimney from bad weather and animal intrusions. In other words, investing in care from a qualified and experienced Old Smokey’s professional is a must.
