Chimney Caps,  Liners & Chase Covers

Highly efficient, highly durable, and easy to use.

Benefits of Chase Covers:

Annual Inspections are recommended:

Years of rain, snow, sleet, hail, and animal tampering can cause your chase cover to rust, corrode, dent, and provide less than ideal protection. It can also destroy the look of your chase cover by leaving unsightly rust streaks down its sides. Of course, not all chase cover damage is as obvious. That’s why we recommend annual inspections! An annual inspection can alert you to problems with your chase cover before you even notice the issue. This simple maintenance can prevent you from experiencing massive water damage to your chimney flue, firebox, chase, and all of the other metal components in your prefabricated chimney system. If we find that your chase cover is in need of replacement, you can count on us to properly and professionally install a quality chase cover that fits perfectly with your chase.

PROTECTION AGAINST RAIN, SNOW, AND SLEET.

The rain, sleet, snow, and ice can damage the masonry, chimney cap, chimney crown, and flashing allowing water to leak inside the chimney. Once water gets inside, it can cause significant damage to the interior walls, flue liner, and firebox. Chimney leaks can also corrode and rust the damper.

The benefits of Liners:

National Fire Protection association states the following:

Damaged or deteriorated liners:
If the flue liner of a masonry chimney has been softened, cracked, or otherwise deteriorated such that it no longer has the continued ability to contain the products of combustion, i.e heat, moisture, creosote and flue gases, it shall be either removed and replaced, repaired, or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that will resist corrosion, softening, or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney service.

Benefits to investing in the safety of a chimney liner:

-reduce the chance of a chimney fire

-provide energy efficient improvement

-stop toxic gases from leaking into the home

-insulation to detour mortar aging and deterioration

-creates the perfect-sized chimney flue for optimal venting and removal of toxic byproducts

Stainless Steel Liners:

liners are constructed of the highest quality metal available and are flexible, airtight, and watertight. Because stainless steel is approved for venting all fuel types, these liners can be great relining options. These stainless steel liners also come with an unparalleled warranty!

Its very common that many liners see damage as a result of use, high heat, and moisture, all of which can really take a toll on flue liners of all types.

You can never be too careful when it comes to protecting your home – and having a liner drastically improves the efficiency and function of your fireplace or stove.

The benefits of Caps:

PROTECTION AGAINST RAIN, SNOW, AND SLEET

The rain, sleet, snow, and ice can damage the masonry, chimney cap, chimney crown, and flashing allowing water to leak inside the chimney. Once water gets inside, it can cause significant damage to the interior walls, flue liner, and firebox. Chimney leaks can also corrode and rust the damper.

PROTECTION AGAINST ANIMALS

Animals in chimney…

Birds are one of the most common animals you find in your chimney. Sometimes they unexpectedly fly in and find themselves trapped, some choose to set up residence due to the warmth and protection. We are able to remove birds, nests, and any offspring with care. However, there are some species that we cannot remove from a flue, the most common is the Chimney Swift. This species is a federally protected under the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act, meaning it is prohibited to kill, capture, sell, trade, and transport protected migratory bird species without prior authorization by the Department of Interior U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

 Squirrels are luckily much easier to remove from a chimney. Since they are excellent climbers, we are often able to remove them by lowering a secured rope down the flue and allowing them to climb out. While this works in many situations, it is not a universal fix. Although we do not remove animals that have already perished, we can provide manual removal of live animals if necessary. Centerville Pipestone Chimney Service crew will do so with the utmost care for both the animal and your home.

Pest Prevention

Keeping pests out of your chimney is as easy as installing a chimney cap. This cover for the top of your chimney is often the first line defense against Raccoons, Squirrels, and Birds. 

Chimney caps also prevent blockages caused by leaves, twigs, and other debris that might otherwise enter your flue. And they help eliminate wind-induced downdrafts, making it easier to keep that fire or furnace burning.

 HomeSaver’s chimney caps offer superior protection and a pleasing aesthetic finish to chimneys of all sizes and styles. When properly fitted and installed, a chimney cap can go a long way in protecting the chimney system.
