Reasons you should install a chimney cap
Chimney shrouds or chimney caps protect the chimney from destruction on the inside from weather elements, such as snow or rain. After a rain shower, the water runs off the sides of your chimney, and if any water were to enter the flue or chimney liner, it might cause rapid deterioration.
Chimney caps also keep birds, squirrels, and other animals resting inside of the chimney or entering the home through it.
Another reason you need to install a fireplace shroud on your chimney is to increase the draft inside as it’s easily deterred yet critical for your chimney to function properly.
Chimney Caps should be replaced when the roof is being replaced.
You should consider a sturdy fireplace shroud to be appropriately installed by expert technicians to avoid unfortunate circumstances.
Chimney flashing seals the seam between your roof and the chimney structure. It keeps water from penetrating those areas where there is a discontinuity of the roof. Improper flashing around chimneys may damage or merely loses its seal due to wear and tear.
Moreover, water can easily seep through any gaps during the rain, damaging the roof, the ceilings, and walls around the chimney.
Flashing keeps things sealed at the base of chimneys while allowing intersections to move when the temperature changes.
There are a few types of chimney’s which require a different type of flashing techniques. There’s vinyl, stucco, brick, cedar, and hand sliding. But all require step flashing, lockout flashing, and ice & water to protect projection.

Chimney Crickets are installed at the rear of the chimney that divides the water around projections and prevents the water from pooling at the rear of the chimney.
Chimney crickets, also called a roof cricket, is a small peaked roof projecting from your main roof and installed at the rear of the chimney that divides the water around projections.
Chimney crickets are made from galvanized steel, aluminum, or stainless steel to prevent the water from pooling at the rear of the chimney.
Why you should install or repair a chimney cricket
Lingering pools of water can cause expensive damage, which occurs due to a crevice between the chimney and the roof’s descending slope.
Other issues that homeowners face due to a cracked chimney cricket are:
- Foundational problems in basements
- Leaky attics
- Water stains that appear on walls
- Leaky chimneys or cracks in their masonry.
A chimney cricket is useful during heavy summer storms and casual passing rains. It disrupts the flow of water as it’s shaped like a three-dimensional triangle. There’s no chance for the water to collect in the chimney, thus preventing water damage, expensive masonry repair work, and further damage to roofing systems.
