Chimney Caps

Jeff Alte Jr. Roofing installs several different types of chimney caps in a variety of different sizes. We install copper, stainless steel and black-painted galvanized steel caps to fit almost any chimney.

Chimney caps are designed to keep animals and other debris from getting into your home or building and to keep sparks from getting out. They also offer some degree of protection to the chimney from the elements.

Chimney Top

The masonry surface of your chimney is the “roof” of your chimney. It will take more punishment from the weather if there is no flu cap than any other section of the chimney. Water getting behind the brick and flu will promote cracking, mold growth and will loosen the brick leading to extensive masonry repairs. We recommend having new mortar applied to the top of your chimney every 5-10 years.
An inspection of your chimney top will let us know if a re coating of the surface is necessary. If so, we will protect your roof and landscaping, remove any loose mortar and apply a new coat of mortar to the entire top of your chimney.

Water Repellency

Chimneys require special attention and maintenance to prevent costly damage caused by water penetration. Because chimneys project above the roof line, they are vulnerable to the elements. Nearly every chimney you encounter has signs of water damage! The first step is to determine the cause and then find the best corrective measures. ChimneySaver, the first product developed specifically for chimneys, reduces water penetration into the masonry by 99.9%, according to ASTM tests conducted at the University of Wyoming. ChimneySaver is a 100% vapor permeable, non film-forming water repellent that penetrates and lines masonry pores and protects your chimney and home from water damage.
