Follow the manufacturer's directions for assembling and installing Band-Around Outside Mount Chimney Caps. Band-Around Chimney Caps are available in both standard sizes and custom-made sizes.

Other Outside Mount Chimney Caps will arrive completely assembled. First, set your outside mount chimney cap on your chimney just like you would put a lid on a shoe box. 

Then you have your choice of attaching your Outside Mount Chimney Cap with Tapcon masonry fasteners or with adhesive. 

If using the Tapcon masonry screw system, drill through the vertical skirt of your chimney cap and into the chimney approximately every 12 inches using a Tapcon drill bit. Then insert and tighten each Tapcon Masonry Fastener. 

If you prefer using adhesive, apply a discontinuous zigzag bead of adhesive to affix the vertical skirt of the chimney cap to the vertical sides of the chimney. The discontinuous bead allows any accumulated water to drain.

You can install an Outside Mount Chimney Cap with Adhesive.
