Don’t Let Animals Enter Your Chimney — Install a Quality Chimney Cap Or Top-Sealing Damper

Animals often think chimneys are ideal spots for building nests, storing their food, and staying warmer during bad weather. We disagree! These nesting materials cause clogs and, more often than not, animals get stuck in the chimney with no way out. This leads to more clogs, bad odors, damage, and pest infestation.

Keep animals out for good by allowing our experts to install a quality chimney cap or top-sealing damper. We install copper chimney caps, pots, and multi-flue caps, as well as Lock-Top and Lyemance dampers, so no matter what you’d prefer, we’ve got you covered.

We also address water leaks by repairing your flashing and crown, and by applying waterproofing to your entire masonry chase. And our repair services don’t end there! We offer tuckpointing, chimney/flue repair & relining (with HeatShield® Cerfractory Foam & Stainless Steel), smoke chamber repair, and refractory panel replacements.
