Our Chimney Cap Provides Complete Protection!

Summer is a time to relax after a long winter and rainy spring. Many homeowners are able to forget about the chimney system altogether through the summer as long as they’ve had it swept, inspected, and closed out for the off-season. You may find yourself noticing your chimney system this summer if it has a problem.

Common summer chimney problems we see at Black Moose Chimney & Stove include water damage, animal intrusion, and chimney odors. Fortunately for our customers residing in New Hampshire, we have a solution for these summer problems!

All About Chimney Caps

Chimney caps have many important jobs during the burn season and the off-season. While a fire is burning in the fireplace, the chimney cap prevents hot embers from escaping the flue and igniting debris on the roof or in the yard. The cap may also deflect wind from affecting your fire.

Your chimney cap works year-round to do even more. The worst thing that can happen to a chimney is a leak. Water can destroy a masonry chimney from the inside out, and without a cap, the water falls right into it. Additionally, Black Moose gets multiple calls through the summer for animal intrusion, a problem that is completely prevented with an appropriate chimney cap. Preventing animal intrusion can keep debris, carcasses, droppings, and more out of the chimney. These things can produce nasty odors as they decompose just like water can create a mildew odor. While you’re enjoying your summer, the last thing you want is to smell the pungent odor of your chimney.

Your Chimney Cap

You can see your chimney cap from your yard. It’s a good idea for homeowners to visually inspect it as often as carbon monoxide and smoke alarms are checked. If it appears crooked, damaged, rusted, or missing, it needs some attention. When you call Black Moose Chimney & Stove, a CSIA-certified chimney sweep will check out your cap and discuss with you the best products to consider.

We only carry the best brands in the industry, and they offer complete protection throughout the year. Luckily, our technicians are trained and experienced installing both. If you’re interested in saving money, the top-mount damper pays for itself. Talk to your Black Moose chimney sweep today about replacing your chimney cap with a top-mount damper and start saving money today. Often called an energy saving damper, these dampers have a rubber gasket that protects the flue with an airtight seal. It keeps animals, moisture, and air out. They are tamper-proof and double as a chimney cap when disengaged. These products are the first of their kind that close the chimney off from the top, protecting the entire system for the off-season.

If your chimney needs attention this summer, call Black Moose at 603-525-7905 and schedule a chimney sweep, inspection, or speak with an expert about new cap!

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
