Why I Like It:
I have installed hundreds of these specific 12″ x 16″ rain caps in the Pacific Northwest. The sturdiest well-constructed cap that is the standard for my chimney cleaning and repair company.
- Made of stainless steel 304 alloy
- 18-gauge base and mesh
- 24-gauge lid
- Fits outside flue tile dimensions of 10.5″ x 14.5″ to 13′ x 17″
Your chimney needs to be in good repair before installing a rain cover.
Rain covers attached to a flue tile that is not properly cemented to the top of the chimney can blow off in a good wind storm, taking the flue tile it is attached to with it (I’ve seen it happen).
Any loose brickwork or chimney cap (crown) issues should be repaired first.
