A decorative chimney cap design does not only serve its main purpose of protecting the inside walls of your chimney but also adds some charm to the very top layer of your home. It is the last item on your roof and it does make an impact since in most cases it is visible when seen from the other side of the street.
Today custom chimney caps come in a variety of shapes and designs to fit any architectural style you like. There is really no limit to the size or shape you can come up with.
The most interesting thing about chimney caps is that they are all handcrafted and as such, they are unique and made of high-quality materials.
One of our favorite decorative chimney cap designs is a chimney crown made with mortar or stone. This type of design goes well with terra cotta chimneys and it must be sealed very well to the flue.
Another popular custom chimney cap design is the metal one. With metal, you can come up with both modern as well as classic looks. In addition, this kind of chimney cap can go on any type of chimney. You can use it on brick ones like the previous cap or even on wood chimneys, stone, or stucco ones.
The raised metal chimney cap design is another one that is quite high on our list of favorites. This cap has small gaps that serve as windows, but it is also equipped with a mesh underneath the lid to keep rodents out.
If you have a prefab fireplace with metal flues, the best chimney cap option is a round cap. This cap comes in copper and steel and offers a variety of colors so you can match it with your roofing.
The Stevenson chimney cap design has a turtle-style lid with legs. This is one of the most common custom chimney caps.
