Caps & Dampers

Chase Covers

Chase covers are located at the top of the chimney and cover the entire chimney chase. Their purpose is to protect the fireplace system from outside elements and animal invasion. In general housing construction, chase covers are made with inferior products and a poor design which allows water pooling and sagging. Most homeowners are unaware that there is a problem until they see water intrusion or rust stains. If a leak is unattended it will eventually rust the entire fireplace system and rot the wood structures that house them. Our chase covers are designed with a cross break rise feature that allows water to naturally glide off.

Chimney Caps & Dampers

A chimney cap is critical to the efficiency of your chimney as it protects your chimney from animals, rain, and debris. Chim Chimney offers a wide variety of chimney caps to fit every taste and budget.

We also recommend chimney dampers be installed in your chimney. The damper serves several purposes within a chimney. The most important thing a damper does is conserve energy in your home. A fireplace without a damper is like having a window in your home open year round. Installing a top mount damper will seal off the chimney when not in use. This will prevent heat or cold air from escaping through the flue, saving you money on heating and air costs.

Critters in Chimney

Birds, squirrels, raccoons and other animals love to set up house in chimneys. The isolated space is ideal for many mama critters to nest, hatch, and nurture their babies. A chimney without a cap is the perfect habitat because the animals have free access in and out. Over time, their nests become quite elaborate and can block the flue, causing Histoplasmosis (a dangerous fungus found in the droppings of birds and bats in humid areas) to form in your chimney.

Most people are not aware that the Migratory Bird Treaty Act makes it illegal to remove or relocate an active nest. A chimney cap is the perfect solution to keeping animals out of your chimney. Not only will it prevent animals from nesting, but it will prevent rain and debris from entering your chimney as well.

Reviews From Our Customers

One word, amazing! I have never used a company that exceeded my expectations until I used Chim Chimney. Everyone was so friendly. The technicians even took time to interact with my children. The service was excellent, but the staff made them amazing!

We used Chim Chimney to clean our dryer vent a couple of times each year. After using another company with less than mediocre service, it was nice to find such a respectable company. The technicians are pleasant and never leave a mess. We have been using them for years and will continue to do so.
