Do you know the importance of having Dallas TX chimney caps installed? Call Chimney Wildlife Tech (214) 295-9318 for help getting yours inspected and installed.

Did you know that about 25% of homes with chimneys do not have the Dallas TX chimney caps installed or have the wrong type of chimney cap installed on their homes? A chimney cap plays quite an important role in the performance of your chimney, along with a very key role in preventing chimney and roof fires. Do you know if your chimney has a correctly installed chimney cap on it that is performing perfectly? The best way to find out is to have a Certified Chimney Professional do an inspection on your chimney cap.

Dallas TX chimney caps help to keep the fireplace drafting correctly. They also prevent any burning particles from rising out of your chimney and landing on your roof. When this happens it is quite possible that a chimney or roof fire will follow shortly. Having a correctly installed chimney cap on your fireplace ensures that your home is protected from the possibility of these lit particles creating fires.

Another key role that Dallas TX chimney caps play is the prevention of birds and other wildlife animals getting into your chimney and nesting there. Right now is most animals breeding season, this means most will be looking for homes to nest in and often the homes they find are chimneys with no caps installed or with caps that do not have animal guards in place. This can cause quite an annoyance to you as the homeowner and opens your home to animals getting in through the fireplace. When the nesting materials are left in your chimney it can cause blockages that prevent the correct drafting from occurring allowing smoke to blow back into your home and can also get hot enough to lite the nesting materials on fire and cause chimney fires.

Dallas TX chimney caps also prevent water leaks in your chimney and protect your mortar crown and chase from break down due to the weather and the elements. When you have a correctly sized and installed chimney cap in place the cap helps to seal your chimney from water and protect the mortar crown. When the mortar crown begins to break down it can cause any bricks and mortar on your chase to being to have spalding issues, if left unhandled for too long this can lead to the entire break down and need for replacement of your chase. If you have a wooden chase the water getting in can cause your chase to rot and need full replacement.

If you are unsure if you need Dallas TX chimney caps call the Certified Chimney Professionals at Chimney Wildlife Tech, (214) 295-9318, for an inspection and evaluation on your caps performance.

Pearland Chimney Caps

If you have noticed water leaks in your chimney you may need Pearland chimney caps, call Chimney Wildlife Tech (832) 413-6431.

Over the last few months we have had quite some rain in the Pearland area. This has lead, unfortunately, to some homeowners finding that there are leaks in their homes that they hadn’t previously known about. This then leads to how do you repair Pearland chimney caps that may be leaking into your chimney?

There are a few reasons that your chimney may be leaking water, one of the easiest to spot is if you have Pearland chimney caps installed on your home. A custom chimney cap when correctly installed on a chimney will help to prevent water from leaking into the chimney during rains and snow. Another reason that you could have water leaking into your chimney is that your mortar crown or chase may need repairs. This often happens when there are no Pearland chimney caps in place or they have been incorrectly installed on the home. One of the main functions of the chimney cap is to protect the chase and mortar crown from damage due to exposure to the elements.

Another thing that can be done to assist with a chimney that has custom Pearland chimney caps installed and the mortar crown and chase are both in good shape is to water proof the chimney bricks themselves. This will help to repel any water that comes in contact with the chase while still allowing the bricks in your fireplace to breathe.

If you have had a chimney leak that has not been repaired call Chimney Wildlife Tech for an evaluation on what is going on. Also, if you haven’t had a leak yet think that your Pearland chimney caps may be non-existent or in need of repair call us right away. Having a chimney cap that is performing poorly will only lead to more needed repairs later on down the road.
