Chimney Caps & Dampers
Better service. No nonsense.
A versatile chimney cap can be the best long-term investment you can make for a chimney. We recommend that every chimney flue is covered with some type of chimney cap, as it can be very beneficial to your chimney’s damper system.
The caps keep debris and pests out of your chimney. These pests often carry diseases and a cap can be the gate that keeps these animals from entering your home.
In addition, chimney caps can act as spark arrestors if any sparks or burning embers are caught in the draft up your chimney. Essentially, this will keep everything in that is supposed to be in your chimney and everything out that is supposed to be out.
A damper cap is a cap that has mounted dampers built in, usually made from stainless steel lids that close airtight against a rubber seal. It can be operated from in the home simply by pulling down on a chain. A top mounted damper is an excellent solution if your traditional throat damper is damaged or needing to be replaced.
Patriot Chimney’s Approach to chimney caps
Every chimney company will approach chimney caps from a different angle. Here’s the five core beliefs that our chimney caps service is based on:
For our technicians and for you. During our time working with you, our goal is to help you understand your chimney’s system, things that are wrong with it, how the problems can be fixed, and how to keep the problems from happening in the future. Moreover, we’ll never send a crew to your home without a CSIA certified expert.
#2. Dedicated Project Managers
From the time you schedule work with us all the way through completion, you’ll have a dedicated project manager helping you along the way. Our project managers are your point of connection and the person you can turn to directly if you have any questions.
#3. Optimize for Performance & Safety
Our work on your chimney is designed to keep you and your family safe, while also keeping your system working in peak performance. Whether your fireplace is brand new or a century’s old statement piece, you can trust us to keep it running like it was on day one.
#4. Report in Natural Language
We won’t confuse you with a bunch of chimney jargon. We provide straight-forward reports that your family can easily understand. Plus, when your project manager reviews the report with you, he or she will be able to explain everything and answer any questions you may have. Besides, education is our #1 value.
#5. Have the Best People
When Patriot Chimney starts a new job, our goal is to set a new high score for service. We know that this isn’t a game, but we want to be the best. At the end of the day, we provide a service, and services are provided by people.

Our Full Cycle Process
Our process is built out of, and rooted in, our approach to chimney caps. You may be interested in how things work after you schedule work with us. We’ve broken it down into five steps.
So, here’s how we do things:
Step 1: Learn
Before we start to work on your chimney, even before the inspection, we talk with you. This way your project manager can understand all of problems that you might be having.
Step 2: Discovery
Once we’ve heard from you and listened to your concerns, we begin our investigation. Depending on the problems that you face, this could be a level 1, a level 2, or a level 3 inspection. Either way, we run a camera through your flue so that we can get a top-to-bottom, inside-out understanding of what’s happening with your chimney.
Step 3: Discuss:
At every move and every discovery, we want you to understand what is happening with your chimney. No surprises. Your project manager will explain all discoveries and action items you’ll want to address.
Step 4: Improve
Once we’ve discovered what’s causing your chimney’s problems and your project manager discusses the action items with you, we schedule a time to work on your chimney to correct the problems you’ve been facing. Your project manager will help you and guide you through the work. We know that any home improvement projects, no matter how minor, can cause undue stress. So we want to limit that as much as possible.
Step 5: Support
Once we’re done, our customer service team works to make sure you are happy with the work. We take our 100% customer satisfaction seriously and want you to be satisfied with our work for years to come. Any quesions that you have, you can feel free to call your project manager or our office and we’re always going to be happy to serve you as your go-to chimney experts.
We understand that prices to fix or install a chimney cap can be a headache all on it’s own. It can be complicated. That’s why Patriot Chimney’s pricing for chimney cap services is pretty straightforward. We charge a flat rate that varies depending on the material, measurements, and a few other factors. You don’t have to worry about hidden costs when you work with us.
