Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked sections when it comes to the adequate prolongation of a dwelling. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Meacham home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other damage.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap.
