                Chimney Cap Installations Tips

Chimney caps are important to the functionality and efficiency of your chimney because without a chimney cap, animals can crawl into your fireplace or birds will make a nest. This is not only annoying but unsafe for all parties involved. When considering the top of your chimney and the safety of your home, try to remember to keep a 20 foot distance between the top of your chimney and surrounding trees.


Damper Installation

Dampers are an important part of your chimney system. They keep your home from losing heat when your fireplace is not in use, as well as keeping out rain and moisture. When water gets inside your flue, it mixes with the toxic gases and other combustion materials and creates a corrosive substance that begins to break down your damper, smoke chamber, and your firebox. Our technicians are qualified to repair or install a new damper for your chimney system with reliable and fast service. We offer top quality products, and when we install your damper, we can also inspect your chimney for other needed repairs. Call today to learn more about our products and repair services.

A top sealing damper is the key. Less expensive to replace, this damper system provides a tight seal and has shown consistent $100 + savings on heating bills in a single season. This damper is easily installed on the top of your chimney by a qualified technician. 2nd Generation Chimneys offers these dampers at a reasonable price, and we are factory authorized to service and install these dampers. Let a 2nd Generation Chimneys technician install one for you today.

In addition to our custom caps, we carry nothing but the best in brand name chimney caps. Homesaver has been building quality tops for over twenty years. Their single flue chimney top attaches directly to the flue tile, and provides economical protection for your home. The top–mounted multi flue chimney top attaches directly to the chimney crown, protecting the flue as well as the crown. Available in Stainless Steel, Black Galvanized, and Copper.

The Chimilator is an energy saving top sealing damper that includes a stainless steel animal/ rain cap. And a multiple setting handle. The Chimilator Deluxe comes with a LIFETIME WARRANTY! Please call for pricing.

Rain Covers

Chimney caps and rain covers come in a variety of styles and materials. If you are looking for the most cost–effective way to protect your chimney from rain, you may want to think about installing a single flue cap that is attached directly to the flue. These will also protect the crown, which is vital in keeping moisture from penetrating the mortar joints. We can help you choose the right style rain cover for your chimney, so just give us a call and ask about the products and installation services we offer.

Chimney Screens

Animal infestation can create ventilation issues, health hazards, and chimney fires. Small animals, such as raccoons, squirrels, opossums, and birds, often use chimneys for nesting sites. When animals get in your chimney, they can also get into attics and crawlspaces and cause more damage to your home. They can also chew through plastic roof vents to get into your home, which is why you should install only durable metal screens for your chimney and roof vents. We offer a variety of quality chimney and vent screens to fit any size opening on your roof. Call us today so that we can install one for you.
