Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. Most of the time, this can be fixed by cutting out the old metal chimney cap with an angle grinder and replacing it with a new chimney cap. Missing mortar joints also need to be corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can easily pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be repaired.
