Chimney Crown Protection

Protecting your chimney crown from weather damage is an important part of preventative maintenance. While all crowns eventually wear down, the more you protect them, the less chances of moisture penetrating the joints below the crown. Waterproof and permeable sealants are recommended to protect the masonry for the entire chimney structure, but it is especially important that your crown is sealed. Installing a chimney rain cover can also deflect some of the water, as well as keeping rain out of the flue. Call us if you’d like to know more about installing a new cap or upgrading to a cap and animal screen combination for extra security.

Chimney Rain Covers

We sell and install quality rain covers for your chimney, and we will discuss all of your options to find the most cost–effective protection for your crown and flue. Single flue caps can be installed with or without a damper attached. The dampers in older fireplaces may no longer seal properly, which causes heat loss, moisture problems, and corrosion in some cases. Installing a cap and damper system is an easy way to solve this problem. We are happy to answer all your questions, so call us today and ask about our quality rain covers and installation services.

Chimney Screens & Dampers

We also offer chimney caps that include dampers and animal screens for the ultimate protection. Not only do animals nest in chimneys, but they can also get into the main areas of your home through cracks or gaps in the flue liner. Installing a stainless steel liner will resolve this issue partly, but installing a screen around your chimney opening will keep animals out altogether. We also provide metal screens for all types of roof vents. Most of these vent covers are made of plastic, and animals can easily chew through these. Protect your home from animal infestation and water damage, call one of our professionals today and ask about our chimney screens.

Chimney Caps & Dampers


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.
