Caps & Guards

Every Chimney Needs a Cap.

Here’s why:

Stop Rain

gelco-cap

A chimney cap prevents rain from entering the chimney, causing damper and firebox rust leading to expensive repairs.

Stop Birds Most chimney caps will not allow birds, bats, squirrels or other animals to enter the chimney to nest.

Discourage Backdraft

Where certain wind conditions exist, a chimney cap will discourage downdrafts. Somecaps are specifically designed to prevent wind from blowing across the chimney,others actually create and updraft when wind blows through them!

Arrest Sparks

Many chimney caps include 18 gauge wire mesh to reduce the amount of sparks and large ash that is normally blown into the air and onto rooftops.

Our Happy Clients

    "All employees were extremely well mannered, very nice, did a fantastic job. Christian Martinez was very thorough and professional. Excellent service, would definitely recommend."

  • Matt H.

    "They installed a vent pipe for our gas water heater. That solved our back draft problem. They were also $400.00 cheaper than other chimney guys in the Cincinnati area."

  • Pike G.

    "What a relief to have found Chimney Works! We have cleaned our chimney for years with another vendor but became dissatisfied with poor service. We knew the time had come for a new liner and some general repairs to our 75 year old chimney. Christian Martinez was AMAZING!!"

  • Erin C.

    "My husband and I researched wood burning stoves for quite a while, and found Chimney Works. For the price, quality, and service, we were sold on this company! I am typically apprehensive about having workers come into my home, but the installation crew that came to set up our new stoves, were phenomenal!"

  • Michael

    "I purchased a fireplace insert a couple of years ago and have been very happy with it. It has paid for itself at this point due to the reduction in our monthly heating bill. When I went in to purchase, the staff was very helpful and took time to explain everything I needed to know about my new insert, right down to how to properly clean the glass."
