CHIMNEY CAP COVERS
A common source of interior leaks that is often misattributed to the roof are caused by deficiencies in chimney structures. Often times, the cause is cracks in the mortar used around the top of some chimneys, which allows water to get behind the protective flashings at the base of the chimney. This can be solved with the installation of a chimney cap cover, which can be fabricated from copper or steel. In addition to helping prevent leaks, chimney cap covers can prevent animal entry, while adding a stylish flourish to the chimney itself.
Custom Chimney Caps in Indiana
Chimney caps are vital for protecting your chimney’s interior and extending its life. A cap or cover is critical if you actively use your home’s chimney. It is essentially a protective covering that connects to the top of your chimney. Caps come in various sizes, shapes and custom options to match your chimney and the rest of your home’s architecture.

Our knowledgeable team can evaluate your needs to help create the perfect option for your property.

One of the primary benefits of chimney caps is that they are customizable to complement your property’s style. You can add a copper ridge or spire to help make your home stand out even more.

Some homeowners who do not actively use their chimneys still opt for a cap cover because of the flair it adds to their home’s aesthetic.
Benefits of Copper and Steel Chimney Cap Covers
Although many homeowners rarely consider the cap as their chimney’s focal point, it is one of the most vital components. Caps offer many benefits by preventing problems from damaging your chimney. When you choose a custom copper or steel option, we can help you address all the necessities stock chimney caps often fail to provide.
The primary advantages of installing a high-quality chimney cap on your home include:
- Reducing moisture: Chimney caps essentially work as umbrellas to keep rain, snow and ice from entering your home and causing corrosion, mold or mildew.
- Restricting animal access: Animals like raccoons, squirrels and birds migrate toward chimneys because of their warmth. Covers deter these creatures and prevent them from getting trapped inside your home.
- Blocking downdrafts: Without a chimney cap, dangerous downdrafts can blow through your chimney and push smoke into your home through the fireplace.
- Preventing sparks and embers: A chimney cover helps prevent sparks from blowing out of the chimney and landing on the roof or another area that could ignite.
