Factory Built Chimneys Popular in Kansas City
Take prefab/factory-built fireplaces and chimneys that have dominated new home construction since the 1980s for example. Factory built chimneys and fireplace frequently have the original manufacturer's chimney cap, but customers notice birds are getting in. Just like other mass-produced consumer products, issues only become apparent when putting to use.
The introduction of animals into an air-cooled chimney system can have disastrous consequences. If the passages that were intended to have air circulation become clogged with nesting materials, the result is a system that can start an unwanted fire instead of preventing one!
Other types of the Pre-fab/factory built chimney tops have a design flaw that allows water to come in through the horizontal screen on the chimney caps lid, leading to an early failure of the fireplace due to water rusting out the unit and rotting the systems support structure.

Majestic Masonry Chimneys in Kansas City
If you drive the neighborhoods of the Kansas City metro, you would not have to look for long to see stunning examples of craftsmanship in the chimneys that adorn our metro. Masonry chimneys tolerate a lifetime of exterior moisture if protected from rain with a repellent/sealer, however, if rain is allowed to enter the clay flue tiles due to an absent cap, the results are a ruined flue liner, damper and/or firebox.
Brick chimneys that have a cap from day one have twice the life of those that are missing. By installing a spark arrester with rain protection style of chimney cap to the flue of a wood or gas fireplace, the homeowner will potentially double the life of the system. This is probably why chimney cap installation is in the top three services of Full Service Chimneys offers to help customers and the masonry chimneys they love.
Brick Chimney Falling Apart? We Can Help
Not just a cap, but the right cap
With the availability of chimney caps from hardware stores and the online resources, many caps are found on both brick and mortar and factory-built chimneys that do more harm than good.
Remember our factory built systems above, if the improper cap is installed, the results are excessive heat in the chimney system threading nearby combustibles with elevated temperatures and unplanned fires in the chimney chase.
The best cap for our prefab/factory built fireplaces are the ones that function in harmony with the original design of the system. These caps provide for the essential needs of rain protection, animal protection, spark arrester and above all air circulation. Caps installed by Full Service Chimney are resourced from reputable suppliers to ensure an appropriate installation is given to our customers.

Masonry chimneys need a specific cap design for best results
Brick/masonry chimneys frequently are seen with aftermarket chimney tops and caps that are the source of a problem the homeowner is having. If the cap is a "one size fits all" type, the customer will often have drafting and smoking issues with the fireplace or utility flue. Homemade chimney caps are a common type of cap we see.
Many of the one of a kind caps were made by local tinsmiths over a hundred years ago and are still serving the flue liner well. Others though where poorly designed and hamper the smoke and fumes trying to exit the chimney. Other issues of these "one of a kind caps" are addressing one problem but allowing another.
If the top of the chimney is protected from rain with only a bonnet, but missing the animal and spark protection. By having rain protection only over a flue, animals are encouraged to live in that chimney over one with nothing at all on the chimney top. After all, they want to stay dry too.
Full Service Chimney carefully evaluates the needs of the entire system so that the customer is satisfied and the chimney is protected. Protect My Chimney Now!
