In addition to enhancing your home’s aesthetic beauty, your chimney protects your family from smoke and harmful gases. It’s important to protect your chimney from harmful factors such as precipitation, animal infestation, natural debris and airborne trash, so it can provide you with a lifetime of low-maintenance service.
Chimney cap installation is one of the wisest investments you can make to protect your chimney and your flues. Although not required by law, a chimney cap provides so many benefits that our Crown Chimney Team likes to use the analogy, “A chimney without a cap is like a house without a roof”, especially in our seasonal New Hampshire climate.
Benefits of Custom Full-Crown Chimney Caps
A full-crown chimney cap is designed to cover the crown of the chimney. It sheds water away from the chimney and prevents rainwater infiltration. It also keeps out debris such as twigs, leaves, and trash; and prevents animal infestation.

How to Protect Your Chimney’s Crown
A custom full-crown cap is a safer, more durable option than a prefabricated flue tile cap from a home improvement store. In fact, non-custom caps can be detrimental because they don’t completely shed water off from the crown, and enable standing water to corrode the exposed crown of your chimney.
How Much Does Chimney Cap Installation or Chimney Cap Replacement Cost?
The cost to purchase and install a chimney cap is determined by factors such as cap style and chimney size. Crown Chimney offers quality chimney cap installation and chimney cap replacement at competitive prices, and we are happy to provide you with an on-site estimate.
