We believe that every chimney would benefit from a protective raincap!
Our biggest selling caps are stainless steel — sometimes single flue caps, but usually multiflue, custom fit to cover the hole chimney top for maximum protection. These caps all have meshed sides. Lifetime warranty. Can be spray painted black for a small extra charge.
Handsome, similar to stainless steel but less durable, and 2 - 3 times more expensive. Long lasting but no warranty provided. Can be allowed to age ("brown up") or can be pretreated to preserve burnished copper look. Vulnerable to wind damage because of malleability. Vulnerable acid damage where oil and gas flues are involved.
Masonry construction with 1 1/2" - 2" thick gray blue slate on brick pillars, usually approximately 4 bricks high. Handsome and usually meets any "historic district" requirements. Mesh protection is extra. Durable but no specific warranty. More difficult to service. Custom-sized; about twice as expensive as stainless steel.
Brick construction. Distinctive but expensive and somewhat impractical with regard to servicing. Often existing on older, unlined chimneys.
Striking European good looks, but hard to service. Doesn't always protect much of the chimney top itself. Clay construction or copper construction — wide variety of decorative designs. Usually one pot per flue.
