Prefabricated Chimney Caps
To meet minimum requirements, all prefabricated chimneys need to have a rain cap/spark arrester installed on top of the chimney.
Left unchecked, rainwater is the most destructive element a prefabricated chimney faces! Since prefabricated fireplaces and chimneys are constructed out of thin sheet metal, rainwater can rust and destroy them in short order.
In addition rainwater infiltration can cause mold, dry rot, and sheet rock damage!
If your prefabricated chimney doesn’t have a chimney cap, or your existing chimney cap is rusted or damaged, NOW is the time to take care of the most basic preventative chimney maintenance tasks and have one installed. Spending a little money now on a high-quality Chimney Cap will save you big headaches and expenses later!
A to Z stocks the most common sizes and types of prefabricated chimney caps and can have one installed for you quickly.
In brief, here are several reasons for purchasing a chimney cap:
- Keep Destructive Rainwater out of the chimney and avoid Expensive Repairs!
- Keep dangerous sparks from escaping the chimney!
- Keep Raccoons, Squirrels, Opossums, and birds out!
- Prevent Rain, Leaves, bird droppings, and other debris from getting into the chimney!
- Help prevent smoking problems caused by wind-induced down drafts!
- Satisfy CA building Code which requires a 3/8” spark arrester
A prefabricated chimney needs a component called a storm collar for a tight seal against water. Let A to Z check to see whether you need this chimney repair.

Thanks for the awesome Service! We had one of your larger competitors come out to fix a water leak in our chimney, only to have it start leaking again a short time later! We called them back out to fix the problem (obviously not fixed right the first time), and they wanted to charge us for another service call! Then we called A to Z, and our problem was quickly and easily diagnosed! Apparently, the other company had tried the band-aid approach with caulk and roofing tar! Your technician knew what he was doing and the problem was fixed PERMANENTLY in short order! You guys are A-1 top notch! If you ever need a reference, let me know!
