We Install Quality Stainless Steel & Copper Chimney Caps

Chimney caps are a must-have chimney component due to their ability to protect your flue against water, animals, bad weather, outdoor debris, and more. If yours is missing, there’s no denying your entire chimney and fireplace will be exposed and at risk, making this affordable investment well worth every penny spent.

Is this an item you can purchase and install yourself, though? We wouldn’t recommend it. Rather, count on a team of chimney pros that is qualified to get it done right.

The Billy Sweet team would be glad to help – call us at 978-552-3332 or reach out to us online now.

Our Chimney Caps Are Custom-Fitted

Chimney caps are important pieces of your chimney’s anatomy, but even the best and sturdiest cap won’t be reliable if it isn’t sized correctly or fitted just right. Again – this is why trusting a professional to get this job done is so imperative. All of our chimney caps are custom-fitted, so rest assured your flue won’t be left vulnerable.

In addition, our caps can be customized to your style and preferences. We sell both stainless steel and copper chimney caps.

What’s the difference between stainless steel and copper chimney caps?

Both copper and stainless steel are extremely reliable, corrosion-resistant, and durable metals. Both are known for withstanding the elements for years, which means you’ll have lasting and reliable protection, no matter which option you go with. The main difference is how they appear:

  • Stainless Steel: Stainless steel has a shiny, metallic appearance. It won’t tarnish or fade over time, so you’ll have that sleek “like-new” look for as long as you have the chimney cap. If you’re going for modern and streamlined, this is a solid option.
  • Copper: Copper has a distinct reddish-brown color to it that many find appealing. Another distinct feature? It gradually develops a patina that can range from brown to green over time – which, again, is a huge draw for some who love that aged appearance vibe.

Oh – and one more thing. Our stainless-steel chimney caps can be powder coated. So, if sleek and metallic doesn’t sound like the choice for you and copper doesn’t feel right either, don’t stress. With us, the possibilities are endless.

Does My Chimney Need a Chimney Cap?

Absolutely. We know the traditional images of chimneys are big masonry structures with a big hole in the top, so… why is putting a roof over it such a big deal nowadays? Well, because those chimneys of the past faced a lot of damage due to their exposed nature.

Chimney caps ensure the following:

  • No water has access to your fireplace. We face snow, sleet, rain, and ice here in the Boston area, all of which can cause a lot of issues throughout your chimney structure if given access. A solid and sturdy cap will ensure none of that foul weather can wreak havoc.
  • No animals can enter your flue. Critters like birds, squirrels, raccoons, and more find the cozy, sturdy walls of your chimney extremely appealing. They set up camp, defecate, have babies, and leave behind flammable nesting materials. Not good.
  • No debris can blow in. Windy days invite grass clippings, twigs, leaves, and more into your chimney flue. This eventually leads to clogging, poor airflow, inefficiency, smoke in the home, fire hazards, and more.
  • No troublesome downdrafts. Who wants downdrafts swooping through their home, affecting indoor temperature and inviting in unpleasant chimney odors? (Hint: The answer is no one.) Chimney caps stop downdrafts dead in their tracks.
