How Does Rain and Snow Not Go Down a Chimney?

If you have ever noticed water trickling at the bottom of your fireplace or critters getting into your property, you need professional attention as soon as possible. If this occurs every time it rains or snows, there may be a problem with your chimney. But for those homes that are very effective at preventing rain and snow from coming down a chimney, the solution is down to one simple thing, the chimney capping cowl.

What Is a Chimney Capping Cowl?

A chimney capping cowl is a protective covering that goes over the top of the chimney and, effectively does what a cap would do. The chimney cap protects the chimney from rain, snow, and other elements that can enter the home. Made from copper or steel mesh, chimney capping cowls come in numerous sizes to suit your distinctive roof or exterior.

What Are the Other Benefits of a Chimney Capping Cowl?

One of the biggest benefits, apart from preventing water and snow from getting into the flue, is that it can keep wildlife away from your property. From birds to squirrels, critters can easily find themselves drawn to your home. Installing a chimney capping cowl can help you to deal with these issues and save money on cleaning and maintenance.

A chimney capping cowl can protect different components of your chimney and your property. If you are looking to keep the elements away from your property, whether it's rain, snow, or critters, a chimney capping cowl can make all of the difference.
