Prevent Damage with
Caps are a vital part of the chimney system. They prevent unwanted guests from moving into your home while also keeping out harmful rain from entering. Special caps can also be used to prevent sparks from exiting the flue and landing on your roof even to help increase chimney draft.

Prevent stray sparks from exiting
We replace broken dampers with energy efficient top mount dampers. These Dampers create a tight seal at the top of your chimney and keep energy in the home. Without a top mount damper, heat in the winter and A/C in the summer will exit your flue, driving up heating and cooling costs. Because of their tight seal, top mount dampers pay for themselves in a short amount of time.
Lock-Top Damper Operating Instructions
To Open Before Lighting A Fire: Pull the damper handle down slightly and release, allowing the lug to pull up and hang freely about 4" above the bracket. (See illustration.) If lug only hangs 1" to 2" above bracket, damper may not be open.
Warning: Do not start a fire if damper is not clearly open. Failure to follow this rule may result in smoke damage.
To Close After Fire Is Completely Out: Pull the handle down until the lug is below the bracket. Move cable into either notch in the bracket and release handle.
Energy-saving note: Closing the damper when fireplace is not in use will prevent heated or air-conditioned air from escaping out the chimney.
