Will it keep out animals?
As the one of the newer employees to Masters Services, I have learned a lot over these past few weeks about exactly why having a custom chimney cap is so important. I take phone calls and get to talk about chimneys all day long. What better way to learn about custom chimney caps! Who knew that investing in a chimney cap could save you tons of money in damage and repairs in the long haul? A common question I get from customers in the Dallas area about custom chimney caps is, “Will it keep out animals”, and the answer is yes- absolutely- yes!! I’ve come to learn that this is a large advantage of having a custom chimney cap – it will definitely keep the critters out. Part of working at Masters Services is learning the deeper meaning as to why is it good to keep those critters out. Well, I’ve also learned that the critters that get in to your chimney can harbor various diseases that no one would want to expose themselves to. If you do not have a chimney cap, the animals can die in your chimney, which also means there is a smelly carcass to deal with – not fun.
What does a chimney cap do?
I also get a lot of questions from customers wondering about how to prevent water damage and rain. Customers ask if a custom chimney cap will help with water damage. The answer again is a strong YES. If you don’t have a chimney cap to keep out the rain, rain can flow down the chimney and get inside the house or even the attic and cause damage to your ceilings and walls.
When I speak with customers on the phone, they have all kinds of questions for me about our custom chimney caps. We make the custom chimney caps right here in our headquarters in Denton, but our technicians can install them for you all throughout the greater Dallas Fort Worth area and beyond. We can even mail them to customers anywhere in the greater US.
It’s been a learning process and the customers really think it’s funny when they ask me about who I work for and I get to say my manager is my mother-in-law and my boss and owner is my brother-in-law. I am proud that we are a family owned and operated business, we keep family in mind when our technicians deal with our clients, they really want what is best for you and have your best interests in mind when it comes to the design and install of your custom chimney cap.
