Chimney Repair Costs:

Chimney caps can protect your chimney from weather and keep leaves and other debris out of your chimney. They can also keep out birds, bats, raccoons and other critters that may enter the chimney. Obstructions in your flue such as leaves or animal nests can interfere with draft, causing smoke and carbon monoxide to enter your house, or even starting a chimney fire.

Additionally, many chimney caps have spark screens to keep sparks from the chimney from hitting your roof.
