Does Your Chimney in Waukesha Need a Custom-Fitted Cap? Ashbusters Chimney Service Is the Team to Trust

What’s a chimney without well-functioning components? If you’re in need of a new chimney cap in Waukesha, Goerkes Corner, Duplainville, Bethesda, Pewaukee, Edgewood, Calhoun, Prospect, Guthrie, Saylesville, Pewaukee West, New Berlin, Brookfield, Franklin, or somewhere else in the area, give our team a holler today.

The chimney cap is one area of your system that takes on multiple roles. It protects your chimney from outside threats (like animals, water, and debris), it ensures downdrafts don’t swoop through your flue and affect airflow, and it even stops stray sparks and embers from landing on your roofing materials.

That said, a cap can’t do an effective job for your chimney if it isn’t fitted correctly. That’s why working with a team that’s trained and dedicated to safety and precision is essential. Fortunately for folks throughout Waukesha, installing custom-fitted caps is one of Ashbusters’ many specialities.

Birds, Water & Debris: What Harm Do They Do?

What do you have to lose by not investing in this affordable chimney component? Well, we’ve mentioned the possibility of harmful things entering your flue, but what harm do these things actually do?

Let’s start with water. When water has easy access to the inside of your chimney, your liner materials will break down a lot quicker than normal. This means less protection for your home, less efficiency when operating your fireplace, and more costly repairs.

Water damage can also cause damage and stains to your walls, ceiling, and attic. In the end, you’ll be more prone to experience mold growth, masonry decay, rotting woodwork, and more.

And if animals get in? Well, first of all, nesting materials can clog up your flue in a hurry. Combine that with smelly feces, noisy babies (your chimney is an ideal place to raise young), and the possibility of critters getting stuck and passing away in there, and you have a whole slew of potential problems coming your way.

And don’t forget about outside debris. Even if animals don’t get in, wind and bad weather can send in all kinds of leaves, twigs, and other materials.

Isn’t it more worthwhile to invest in an affordable chimney cap now than to shell out money for larger repair and restoration services down the line? We think so.
