Chimney Cap

RAIN CAP

It is said that by not having a rain cap covering the top of your chimney is like having a hole in your roof or not having a roof over your head.

The purpose of a rain cap with a screen is to keep rain, snow, birds, animals and debris from entering the flue.   A screen is designed to keep sparks from escaping in the event of a chimney fire.
