A copper chimney cap has several upsides and is taken into consideration by any homeowner with a fireplace.
Copper caps do not require frequent maintenance because they don’t stain or allow any materials to build up on them.
The copper chimney cap will cover the top of the chimney and forbid the infiltration of water, that may cause interior eroding, and the access of small animals that may enter the chimney or birds that may nest on top of it.
Copper chimney caps are one of the most commonly used by homeowners simply because they are both effective and inexpensive.
During the fuel burning process, sparks and embers sometimes shoot out the chimney top, causing the risk of a fire. The copper caps prevent any sparks from exiting the chimney and igniting the roof, thus keeping you and your home safe.
