Our masonry chimney cap replacement service involves the following:

-Custom measurement and fabrication of a new chimney cap

-Installation of the new chimney cap using high-quality materials and proper flashing techniques

Benefits of masonry chimney cap replacement:

  • Prevents moisture damage to masonry chimney
  • Restores proper draft for better performance
  • Deters birds and pests from entering

  • Extends the life of the entire chimney

Additional Masonry Chimney Cap Services

For example, if you notice rust, corrosion, holes, or missing sections in the cap, it likely means water and weather have damaged the materials, so they need to be switched out.

Similarly, caps that have cracks, defective screening, loose fittings, deteriorating mortar, or issues with downdrafts and cold air infiltration have components that have exceeded their lifespan and require replacement. Other signs are more about regular maintenance – if your chimney cap is over 10-15 years old or just looks dirty and unattractive, replacing it can restore function and aesthetics.

If you notice any combination of these issues with your chimney cap, it’s a sign replacement will be needed to protect your chimney and home.
