How are chimney caps installed?
The steps involved in installing a chimney cap may seem simple enough, but it is important to leave the task to the Hartford professionals with chimney experience.
1.) The opening of the chimney is measured in order to accurately size the cap.
2.) The chimney cap is then placed over the flue on the top of the chimney.
3.) Next, we tighten the screws of at the base of the chimney cap to the top of the flue.
4.) It is also extremely important to remain cautious by checking the screen and holes in the base to makes sure they are clear of any packing or invasive materials.
5.) We then work to caulk around the chimney base and between the flue to prevent water from leaking into the attic.
6.) The last step is to screw the top of the chimney cap to the chimney base.
