What Are Shelter Chimney Caps?
A shelter chimney cap is a standard square or rectangular chimney cap that attaches to the flue tile using bolts and protects the entire top of the chimney. Shelter chimney caps come in various sizes to fit your home’s flue tile, and can even be custom-made to fit the exact integrity of your chimney.
Is a Shelter Chimney Cap Right for Me?
If your home has a square or rectangular flue tile that sticks an inch or more above your chimney crown, a shelter chimney cap is a great choice to prevent water penetration, keep animals and debris out, and protect the interior of the chimney from damage.
Our shelter chimney caps are available in stainless steel (including original and black powder coating) and copper. Although both of these options are incredibly durable and corrosion-resistant, copper caps do require more regular maintenance to prevent them from dulling and turning green. This process of turning green is referred to as patina, and a lot of people like the look of it with copper.
