Repairs on Caps, Covers, & Dampers
In regions such as the Gulf Coast and the eastern coast, rainfall is more abundant than anywhere else in the United States. This specific area receives even more rainfall than Seattle. When considering rainfall statistics, Mobile and Pensacola hold the top two positions, whereas Seattle ranks 41st. The volume of rainfall in this region holds significant importance concerning chimneys and fireplaces. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), “water, not fire, is the primary cause of most chimney damage.” The CSIA further notes that, “Regardless of whether they are made of masonry or factory-built materials, extended exposure to water can lead to the formation of cracks or gaps in chimneys, which can collect creosote and increase the risk of fire, or create openings through which harmful gases can escape into your home, potentially exposing your family to carbon monoxide.”
Fireplaces, Chimneys and Leaks
In basic terms the problem with fireplace and chimney leakage is that water combines with the creosote that remains from fires to form an acidic mixture. Over time that mixture can eat out the silica in the mortar joints.
Once the joints are no longer secure, moisture — remember all that Gulf Coast rain — can get into the house through the chimney. Water seeps through the chimney, underneath the shingles leading to a roof replacement.
Without the proper sealant, heat from fires can travel into areas which should not be exposed to heat, dry out wood, and in some cases cause the wood to catch on fire.
According to a staff report by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are about 22,000 fires a year associated with fireplaces, chimneys and chimney connectors. Such fires can cause substantial damage and in some cases may lead to fatalities.
Also, without caps it does happen that birds and animals get into fireplaces. Sometimes nests are built and animals unable to get out die inside chimneys and fireplaces. Noises and odors can result from such problems.
Caps, Covers and Dampers
You can protect your household with caps, covers and dampers. Caps with spark arresters are devices that go over the flue. They keep out both moisture and animals, plus they help prevent sparks from leaving the chimney. Covers are at the top of the chimney, go around the flue, and protect against moisture. Dampers are inside the chimney itself. They can help create a proper draft to achieve the best fire, plus when closed they prevent animals from getting into the house.
Cap, Cover and Damper Services
Our technicians can install, repair and maintain caps, covers and dampers. We inspect such devices as part of our basic chimney sweep services. We have devices in stock and can recommend the equipment that is right for your fireplace and chimney, whether it is masonry or metal, new or historic.
