The Benefits Of Having A Rain Cover On Your Chimney

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.

“Great service and great quality workmanship.  Have used them for the last 10 years and have always been pleased.  Never been up sold or told that my chimney requires extensive repair.  Utilized another chimney service provider and by the end of the appointment they made me feel that I needed a completely new fireplace after only having the house built for two years.  Valley Chimney has never done that and has always taken care of my fire place.  Would highly recommend.”
