The chimney flashing is a vital part of the chimney that should be kept well maintained. It plays a vital role and protects your home from water damage by preventing rain and water from leaking in. We have been installing and repairing chimney flashings throughout Burnaby for over 20 years. With all chimney flashing repair and installation service, we use the best materials on the market to provide the highest level of protection from water and leaks. However, chimney flashing materials have shorter lifespan and durability than other parts of your chimney and roof (bricks, mortar, cement, wood). Therefore these materials naturally deteriorate quicker over time and it is recommended to have your chimney inspected periodically for any deterioration or defects.
We provide chimney caps for our clients around Burnaby. Before deciding on installing a chimney cap, It is essential to understand some of the benefits of having it. One of the reasons as to why chimneys should have caps is to prevent debris from failing into the chimney through the hole. A chimney without a cap is like a chimney with a hose, which is not the best idea. It is crucial to ensure a cap is placed at the top to prevent any material from failing through the chimney tunnel.

Another reason as to why it is important to have a chimney cap is that it ensures water does not penetrate through the chimney. Reason being is that water may destroy the chimney and result in unexpected costs due to the destruction that it creates. It is super important to keep chimneys closed at all times in order to guarantee that the chimney does not get spoiled. The caps act as a deterrent for any water or snow to penetrate thus preventing damage for the chimney.
