Protect Chimneys: Chimney Shroud vs Cap Atlanta

The significance of properly selecting between a chimney cap and a chimney shroud cannot be overstated in Atlanta’s variable climate. These crucial chimney components play pivotal roles in defending against rainwater and debris, thus averting potential damage to your home.

Beyond their functional benefits, chimney caps and shrouds are crafted to complement your home’s exterior, merging utility with aesthetic appeal to enhance your property’s value.

What is a Chimney Shroud?

If you have a prefabricated chimney, you’ll want a chimney pan, also called a chimney rain pan or chase pan. This is a flat metal cover that protects the entire chimney crown and chimney chase.

A chimney shroud is a decorative chimney cover that sits on top of a chimney pan.

Its main purpose is to be a decorative addition while also adding an extra layer of protection. The combo of a pan and shroud is very common for Atlanta homeowners.

What is a Chimney Cap?

A chimney cap is for masonry chimneys, and it protects the chimney flue from water. A custom chimney cap, like ours at National Chimney Service, protects not just the chimney flue but the entire chimney crown and instruction. Offering the best protection from water damage.

This week, we showcased our expertise with a custom cap solution for an Atlanta homeowner concerned about their masonry chimney, equipped with a cracked terracotta chimney pot. The first thing we did was remove the damaged terracotta chimney pot. 

Since this Atlanta homeowner has a stucco chimney (masonry), we installed a custom chimney cap instead of a chimney shroud. (If that had a prefabricated chimney, we would have had to install a chimney pan and shroud).

Our custom chimney cap installation service enhances the masonry chimney’s functionality and appearance.

Following the removal of the damaged terracotta pot, we applied an elastomeric coating to protect the masonry from further damage. The homeowner then chose a custom black galvanized steel chimney cap, a decision that underscores the importance of durability and cost-effectiveness in selecting between chimney caps and shrouds.
