Chimney Cap Installations & Replacements By Certified Pros
Here at Chim Chimney Sweep, we work hard to make it easy for homeowners in the MetroWest area to keep their chimneys free of costly damage — and it starts at the top. Every chimney needs a quality chimney cap to keep rain, snow, sleet, and nesting birds and animals out of the chimney flue. Is your chimney protected against leaks and animals? If not, it’s time to give Chim Chimney Sweep a call.
Examples Of Caps & Covers We Sell, Install & Replace
Galvanized Steel Caps
Galvanized steel caps are the most affordable option, but the downside is, they won’t offer you long-term protection against leaks, animals, and birds. In fact, galvanized steel caps are prone to rust, which is why they only carry a three-year warranty. If you need a quick fix and you’re trying to save money short-term, galvanized steel can be a good option, but keep in mind, you’ll need to keep an eye out for signs of a chimney leak and revisit the chimney cap in just a few short years.
Stainless Steel Caps
While it’s a more expensive option than galvanized steel, if you’re looking for a lifetime of protection, we recommend going with a stainless steel cap. These caps carry a lifetime warranty and won’t rust through, which is important, considering that the cap will be consistently exposed to moisture through rain, snow, and sleet. The benefit of having a stainless steel cap is that you won’t have to think about it again — you’ll know your chimney is protected as long as that cap is up there.
Copper is another very strong and reliable metal, and a copper cap will last you a lifetime as well. The biggest difference between copper and stainless steel caps is that stainless steel caps will remain the same in appearance, while copper caps will patina with time. Copper caps also tend to be pricier than stainless steel caps, but if you love that patina look and you want a lifetime of protection against chimney leaks and nesting animals, there’s no substitute for a copper cap.

See What Our Customers Are Saying!
Chim Chimney have been here for several years now. They clean our chimney every year, and if there’s any other maintenance that needs to be done, I have them do that as well. They installed a chimney liner a few years ago. I’d give them an A. I’m perfectly satisfied. I like that they do the job. They show up when they say they’re going to show up. They charge me what they say they’re going to charge me, and the work seems to be, as far as I can tell, perfectly good quality. I use them every year, and I would recommend them to anybody.
More than satisfied- from the pleasant young lady that helped set up an appointment to our chimney technician. The chimney technician was very informative and thorough. For someone that does not know too much about chimneys I have a much better understanding because he took so much time with us! Even our dog loved Greg. Showed up on time, chimney was cleaned well, and recommendations were given regarding our new wood stove. Even put our cap back on that he did not have to do. Definitely recommend!
Chim Chimney answers their own phone with a live person. They were able to fit me in because of a cancelation, and they did a super job
