Our staff at Aelite Chimney Specialties understands how important it is for our customers to save money however they can, but there are times when it is worth spending extra money for quality products. One of these times is when you are purchasing a new chimney cap. While it may seem like a great bargain to buy a chimney cap from a big box store like Costco or Sam’s Club, you will most likely end up spending more money on repairs and possibly even the replacement of that cheap cap that you thought was such a good deal. We would like to tell you why you should always buy your chimney cap from certified chimney professionals.
The chimney caps that are sold at the big box discount stores are inexpensive for a reason. According to Do It Yourself, the chimney caps you will find at big box discount stores are generally made from galvanized metal, which means they are more likely to become corroded by rusting. Galvanized chimney caps can even cause damage to the interior of your chimney when they become rusted. At Aelite Chimney Specialties, we sell chimney caps that are constructed from higher quality metals like stainless steel and copper. We find these metals do not rust as easily and provide long-lasting durability.
When you purchase your chimney cap from a store like Costco, Sam’s Club, Home Depot, etc, you will most likely be on your own to install the chimney cap. While this may seem like an easy job, installing a chimney cap actually takes knowledge, experience, and precision to be sure your chimney is adequately protected from water leaks and animal invasions. If you buy your chimney cap from Aelite Chimney Specialties, you can trust our certified chimney technicians to properly fit the cap on top of your chimney. They will also ensure the cap is securely fastened to the chimney so that it will not blow away in a wind storm.
Every chimney cap sold by Aelite Chimney Specialties comes with a lifetime warranty. We also provide warranty coverage of our professional chimney cap installation services. You want to be fully covered by an extensive warranty when it comes to your chimney cap in case you need repairs performed to fix damage. Generally, the big box stores will not offer an extensive warranty coverage with the cheaper chimney caps they sell, and this means you will have to pay for the repairs to the inevitable damage that occurs to an inferior cap.
