why-should-i-have-a-rain-coverRain can damage metal fireboxes and dampers. It can also erode mortar joints, causing the chimney to weaken. For rain protection, a top quality rain cover is the solution. A stainless steel model gives lifetime protection from moisture damage.

Rain covers also prevent animals from nesting in your chimney. Squirrels, raccoons and birds are the most common chimney invaders. Nesting is a serious fire hazard and can cause smoke or carbon monoxide vapors to back up into your home. Animals entering into your home through the chimney can do extensive damage to your furniture, drapes and carpet while trying to find an escape.
