Rain, Animals, Sparks, Protect your Chimney with a Gelco Chimney Top

Does Your Home Have An Uncapped Chimney?

If your answer is yes, you need a Gelco Chimney Top. Why? That’s simple!
Your chimney is a hole in your roof!

An uncapped chimney:

  • Says “come on in, make yourself at home!” to nesting birds and animals.
  • Allows rain and snow to enter your chimney, which leads to moisture damage and expensive repairs.
  • Creates a fire hazard as burning embers and sparks escape through the open chimney and land on your roof or in your yard.

Protect your home with a Gelco Chimney Top!


Embers And Sparks

Every year, throughout America, thousands of fires are started by burning embers that rise up the flue, exit through an uncapped chimney, and land on the roof or yard. The results can be devastating, and even life threatening.

Avoid becoming a statistic. Contain these embers with a professionally installed Gelco Chimney Top. Designed with spark arrestor screens that keep burning embers in, Gelco Chimney Tops give you protection and peace of mind.

Animal Intruders

The Unwelcome Houseguest

Sure, raccoons and squirrels are cute, and birds sound nice – as long as they’re outside. But when raccoons , squirrels, and birds decideRacoons in chimney to come inside and make their home in your chimney, they’re anything but cute!

Imagine your surprise when they just drop in to visit unexpectedly through an open chimney. Besides being a threat to you physically, they can cause extensive damage to your home and furnishings.

Even if they don’t get into your living area, they may decide to take up residence in your chimney. In addition to being noisy, wild animals carry disease that can be transmitted through their droppings.

Their nests can block the flue, which can contribute to dangerous back-puffing, Racoon Chimney logocarbon monoxide poisoning, and chimney fires. No one wants their family exposed to that.

Moisture Damage

Water causes the greatest damage to your chimney of any of the elements. It soaks into porous bricks, eats away at the mortar, hastens the destruction of your chimney liner, and destroys the mortar crown on the top of your chimney. A chimney cap does a great job of protecting your chimney from water damage. For maximum chimney protection we recommend a multi-flue cap. That’s because a multi-flue cap covers the entire chimney, not just one flue.
