In addition to roofing services, we also install and replace chimney caps.
The main purpose of chimney caps, also referred to as chimney covers, is to protect the chimney flue while assisting with creating the right amount of ventilation for your fireplace or wood stove. They are also designed to prevent downdraft so that your Winston-Salem, North Carolina home doesn’t fill with smoke. There are many different types of chimney caps, so it is important to have an understanding about which is best for your chimney, as well as the way it is typically used and taking into account the local climate. In this area, it is critical to have chimney caps designed to handle the high winds that can come with severe weather conditions.
At Smithrock Roofing, we are known for our expertise with roofing, and we bring that same knowledge to providing our customers with the best chimney caps and services. We consider what chimney caps are designed to do but also the aesthetics that you want to achieve. Focusing on appearance and functionality is important as you need to have your chimney protected from wind and rain, as well as keep pests out, while having a visual that appeals to you. If you have been having difficulty keeping a fire going in your fireplace or wood stove, it could be the chimney cap to blame, and an upgrade to a draft-inducing model is often the solution.
If you are having us handle a roofing concern at your home and would like us to also check out the chimney cap, don’t hesitate to let us know. We’ll be happy to assess its condition and let you know about upgrades that could better serve your needs and add beauty to your home.
