Nashville Chimney Cap & Crown Repair
While not easily seen from the ground, chimney caps are a vital component to securing your home from the exterior elements. They can also come in all types of custom shapes, sizes and metals adding to the homes curb appeal. We recommend having the chimney crown inspected every few years to ensure that it is not rusted, holding water or cracking if it is a concrete top. All of these items can lead to water intrusion.
Most newer caps are comprised of a a galvanized chase cover and through wall flu cap. The chase cover fits neatly over the brick or siding similar to a how a shoe box cover fits over the box. The flue cap is where the chimney actually ventilates from. It is secured both to the inside flu wall and to the top of the chimney cap.
