A chimney shroud is a beneficial accessory that provides the protection of a chimney cap or rain pan with the additional benefit of enhancing the curb appeal of your Fountain Square, Meridian Hills, or Indy area home. While your family is enjoying the warmth of a spectacular fireplace, the chimney shroud is helping to ensure that neighborhood critters, blowing leaves, and debris stay out of the flue. It also increases heating efficiency minimizing creosote from your wood-burning fireplace.
Chimney or fireplace shrouds are available in many different shapes, colors, sizes, and styles to complement your home. So, whether you have a new home or are remodeling an older or historic home, a chimney shroud will give your chimney a unique and elegant appearance. When considering a decorative chimney shroud, it must be the right size for your chimney.
In addition to standard and copper shrouds, Chimney Solutions Indiana also offers custom decorative shrouds that will give your chimney a distinctively stunning appearance, improving your home’s overall curb appeal. We build custom shrouds to order using your chimney’s precise measurements for a perfect fit. Fabricated in-house from high quality, high-gauge metal, protective finish resists oxidation, corrosion, and rust for long-lasting all-season durability. Of course, we offer custom rain pans too!
Wood-burning fireplaces are just as prevalent in many homes in Zionsville and Lawrence as they are in downtown Indianapolis. However, the wood-burning process produces creosote. It can cause a roof fire if a spark or hot ember flies out the flue and lands on your roof. A chimney shroud minimizes the risk of creosote sparking a roof fire. However, a chimney shroud is not a replacement for annual chimney inspections and cleanings. Here are three additional benefits of installing a chimney shroud:
Keeps Rain and Snow Out of the Chimney: With long winters, spring showers, and humid summers, the rain, and snow common in the Greater Indy area can cause extensive damage when it gets inside the flue. A chimney shroud is a decorative protective cover that will help keep rain and snow out of the chimney.
Prevents Animal Entry: Curious critters like small birds, squirrels, raccoons, and even pests often find their way into your home through an open flue. When small animals build their nests inside the flue, the combustible twigs can cause a chimney fire. A chimney shroud shields your chimney from curious neighborhood critters.
Improves Chimney Draft: Your fireplace needs sufficient oxygen to start and maintain a productive fire. However, flue obstructions from creosote build-up, animal nests, leaves, and other debris can restrict oxygen flow, reducing heating efficiency. A chimney shroud helps prevent those common chimney problems, which improves the draft for a more enjoyable fireplace experience.
