We Aim To Deliver Results That Exceed Your Expectations Each Time You Call On Us

Chimney Caps

The best investment you can make to protect your chimney is a good quality chimney cap. A chimney cap prevents entry of rain and animals and helps contain sparks. The number one cause of damage to chimneys is rain and weather. Birds and animals are attracted to chimneys. Chimneys offer a nice, tall place to live with secure protection. However, animal and bird nests are highly flammable and if the critter can’t exit through the top of the chimney, she and her babies will try and exit through the bottom – right into YOUR house! Chimney caps can also help solve certain chimney performance problems.

Spark Arrestors & Performance Problems

A good chimney cap also includes a screen that helps control sparks. On windy days, chimney draft can be affected and if sparks exit the chimney they can ignite nearby trees, leaves and other flammables. If your home is located within a wooded area, a chimney cap with a spark arrestor is strongly recommended.

Fireplace Dampers

Keep heat and energy in and rain and animals out. The Lock-Top Damper seals tight with a silicone rubber gasket. That’s right, our damper seals with a rubber gasket, not metal to metal like your current damper. A Lock-Top Damper seals tight, so virtually no air, and thus no heat or air conditioning gets lost up your chimney. The Lock-Top also eliminates downdrafts, seals out rain which can deteriorate the inside of your chimney, and prevents entry by pests like squirrels, raccoons, and nesting birds.

 

The Lock-Top Mounts on Top of Your Chimney

On top? Yes, that is the perfect location to create an airtight seal. A cable drops down your flue and attaches to a handle which mounts where you can reach it for convenient opening and closing.

Superior Stainless Steel and Cast-Aluminum Construction Equal a Lifetime Warranty

The Lock-Top Damper is made of cast-aluminum and stainless steel, precision fitted with our special silicone rubber gasket. These high-quality materials add up to a factory lifetime warranty for you.

Professionals stake their reputation on what they sell. Lock-Top Dampers are only sold through professionals because it takes a professional for proper sizing and installation.
