Long Island Chimney Caps
Licensed and Insured Chimney Services
Always Affordable Chimney provides a wide array of chimney services, including the installation of chimney caps, for clients across Long Island.Having a properly installed chimney cap is a critical part of the process of keeping your home and chimney in a proper working condition. While older chimney caps can provide adequate protection, a more modern stainless steel cap is most often recommended. The lifespan of chimney caps is not too long and they need to be repaired or reinstalled every few years.
The Importance of Chimney Caps
Chimney caps can be an overlooked part of your chimney as a whole, but they provide your home with a lot of safety aspects. Below are some safety measures that are ensured by having a properly working cap on your chimney.
Safe From Animals
A properly installed chimney cap on Long Island will keep animals and debris out of your chimney flue and home. Small birds, called chimney swifts will create nests in your flue if they can gain access to it. Raccoons and squirrels are also known to take up residence in an unprotected chimney flue. If you have ever seen what a loose raccoon can do to the insides of your home, the small investment that a stainless steel chimney cap requires is a small price to pay. In addition to the nuisance these animals create, there are important health reasons to consider as well. The droppings of these animals carry diseases that can be harmful to you and your family. Another issue to consider is the nests that these animals will create. They can often block your chimney flue completely send back carbon monoxide and smoke into your home.
Safe From Water/Rain
Your chimney is most likely made of brick and mortar. These materials do absorb water and over time masonry damage can occur. A chimney cap will make sure that the rain falls away from the structure and prevent rainwater from entering the flue.
Safe From Floating Embers
Just as a Chimney Cap keeps unwanted animals, debris and water from entering the chimney flue, the chimney cap also prevents floating embers that may be created by a fireplace, from escaping the flue and landing on your rooftop. In a more severe case of an actual chimney fire, your stainless steel chimney cap may be your home’s best and last line of protection from a more severe house fire. Chimney fires are rare but they do occur. Your best protection against chimney fires is to have your chimney inspected and cleaned on an annual basis.

What Our Clients Are Saying!
You have very professional and polite service men! They gave me some helpful tips about how to use my fireplace and really educated me about the chimney cleaning process.
Thanks for completing the job. By the way, I've already been referring you to friends. Your service techs were the most professional vendors I've had at my house in so long. It was a pleasure doing business with you. The stainless steel liner you installed was so inexpensive compared to the other two estimates I had. Thank you for your honesty.
I would highly recommend Always Affordable Chimney. They were very honest and cooperative. I am going through a divorce and had to wait months for my ex’s contribution and Tommy was more than patient and understanding. The work was done efficiently, neatly and to the highest level of quality. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
These guys are great. The owner knows what it takes to get a job done. I had numerous issues and he found solutions, stuck with them and made it happen all while checking in on any of my concerns. I rarely come across anyone I would recommend to friends – I would sing this company's praises. From Tom and his intelligent crew to his wonderful office coordinator Justine (very professional and friendly), they came prepared, were considerate of my property, and did a fantastic job. They seem to love their work, go figure. Top of the line!
Thank you Tom for your exceptional job & advice at my Bay Shore home. I would have wasted a lot of money, time, & material if I listened to previous chimney companies. You're an angel!
