Chimney Caps

Installing a chimney cap on your Pensacola, FL, chimney is absolutely essential. Why?

The reasoning is quite simple. When you burn fires, some smoke adheres to your flue walls, forming a substance known as creosote. Although creosote is highly flammable in large quantities, it won't damage your chimney on its own. However, when creosote mixes with water, it becomes highly acidic and starts to erode the silica inside your mortar joints.

The mortar joints are the cement product that holds your chimney flue together. Once the silica or bonding agent is gone from these joints, the mortar reverts to sand. Once this happens, it's just a matter of time before it falls out and deteriorates.

If you lose the mortar between your terracotta flue tiles, you open yourself up to dangerous scenarios. For instance, burning wood produces carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and several other gases simultaneously. Normally, this isn't an issue when your fireplace is functioning correctly. However, without a cap, these gases can escape your flue and potentially enter other parts of your Pensacola home.

Additionally, your chimney cap keeps out unwelcome visitors, leaves, sticks, and other unwanted debris, ensuring you don't wake up to a squirrel or raccoon in your chimney.
