Chimney Pots, Capping, and Removal

An unused chimney can wear over time, and can become damaged by the elements and intrusive animals. Unused chimneys can also result in heat loss in your property.

Benefits of Capping or Removing a Chimney

Chimney caps prevent debris from falling into the chimney stack and help keep your fireplace and stack clean. They also help prevent potential damage from nesting birds or squirrels. Caps also prevent heat loss from disused chimneys, which will reduce your heating bills. They also protect your home from the elements. An open, unused chimney can be a route for rain and frost, which can cause damp problems in the stalk and adjacent areas on you property, such as the loft. Rain and frost can also led to erosion in the chimney stack. If you no longer require a chimney, removing it can reduce costly investments needed to regularly repair and maintain your chimney. 

Capping a Chimney

Our experienced and professional tradesmen can cover disused chimneys with reliable caps, such as a flue ventilator. Flue ventilators will stop rain from entering into the chimney while allowing air to pass through for ventilation. If you decide to cap your chimney, you should also block the bottom of the chimney stalk with a register plate or by closing the fireplace’s baffle. Our helpful tradesmen can assit you with properly cap your fireplace.
