Examples of Copper Hip and Ridge Lid Caps that Chimney Savers installed

A word on quality & installation:  We mount our caps using masonry anchors and adhesive. Most of our competition only uses the adhesive which dries out in a few years and then the cap blows off the chimney. Because we bolt into your masonry with anchors we can offer cap installations that are guaranteed for the life of your chimney crown. We only use 18 gauge stainless steel and copper to make our chimney caps and they have a lifetime warranty because they are made to exacting standards from the finest materials. That means we make them to stand up to severe weather, extreme heat, and animals that would make a home in your chimney.  We make them rugged because that's what you need in a chimney cap. There are other caps and installers, but if you want a lifetime of protection for your chimney, get the best... get Chimney Savers.

Reasons for a top seal energy-saving damper

1.  Save energy dollars - traditional throat

dampers have a metal-to-metal seal.  Even

when they are new, they leak.  That leaking

gets worse over time as they rust and warp

with heat.  That means even when they are

closed they allow warm air from your home to

escape up the chimney. This adds significantly

to your energy costs. Our top energy-saving

dampers seal with a silicone rubber gasket that

seals warm air in 90% more effectively that even

new throat dampers.

2. Protect your chimney from water damage - damage caused by water from rain and snow will destroy your chimney.  Water runs down your chimney and erodes the mortar joints and damages the firebox in your fireplace.  Our energy-saving dampers will protect your inner chimney from water damage during those times you are not using your fireplace.

A word on quality:  There's a reason we install top dampers on more chimneys every year than any other type of damper.  They carry a lifetime warranty.  They're made of solid cast aluminum and stainless steel parts assembled to exact standards.  Use us, if you want the best energy-saving damper money can buy.  Everything else is a distant second.

Note: Top Dampers are not designed to keep animals out of your flue and should be installed under a proper chimney cap. Installing a top damper underneath a chimney cap will also keep snow off the lid and help stop freezing rain from icing up the lid. A chimney cap over the top damper allows for proper damper operation (opening and closing for fireplace usage) in all but the most extreme winter weather. Top dampers should be cleaned and serviced yearly when your fireplace is swept (to maintain proper operation) and is this is typically included by most chimney sweeps.

Chase covers

A custom chase cover fits your chase perfectly - with options just right for you

These attractive, durable chase covers are custom made to fit snugly over your chimney chase to offer years of protection against the elements.  They can have as many chimney holes as needed, with any diameter and any location. We make our collars to entirely enclose your chimney pipe protecting it and eliminating the need for a caulked storm collar. Unlike our competition, we do not use any caulking on our chase covers all seams are welded and soldered. Our stainless steel and copper chase covers come with a lifetime warranty.

Custom-made chimney caps offer perfect fit, style, and material

Chimney Savers can custom make a cap just right for you. Not all flues and chimneys are a standard size or shape.  We offer custom caps so you can choose the size, shape, mounting style, and metal you like.

Three reasons every chimney needs a cap

1. Rain protection - water causes the greatest damage to your chimney of any of the elements. It soaks into the porous bricks, eats away at the mortar, hastens the destruction of the chimney liner, and destroys the chimney crown.  A chimney cap does a great job of protecting your chimney from water damage.  For maximum chimney protection we recommend a multi-flue cap.  That's because a multi-flue cap covers the entire chimney, not just one flue.

2.  Animal protection - one of the great sources of

danger to homeowners is the threat of disease from

animals like raccoons, squirrels, birds, and rodents

that make their home in their chimneys.  A well-made

chimney cap will keep those animals out of your home

forever.  Sturdy mesh and a strong lid keep even the

most determined critters at bay.

3.  Spark protection - the mesh screen on our caps

protect your home from sparks emitted from your

chimney.  That means less danger of a fire caused by

stray sparks from your fireplace or wood stove.
