Single flue caps attach to the flue. For chimneys with a singSelect Single Square or Rectangular Flues: Chimney Caps That Attach to the Fluele square or rectangular flue, select a chimney cap from those shown below. You will see chimney caps that attach to the flue with a clamp like the clamp on an automobile's radiator hose. Others attach to the flue with set screws that press against the flue.

Which Metal is Best for a Chimney Cap? 

Single Flue chimney caps are manufactured from stainless steel, copper, and galvanized steel. Stainless steel is the best value for the dollar. Copper is the most elegant, especially for historic or upscale homes. Stainless steel and copper chimney caps come with a lifetime warranty. Some stainless steel caps can be powder coated with black or colored with heat resistant finishes. Galvanized steel is the least expensive and the least durable.  Galvanized steel chimney caps are painted black.

Copper is not recommended for light colored chimneys. Stainless steel is the preferred metal for salt water climates.

What to Measure: 

To measure for a single flue chimney cap, measure the outside length and width of your flue. Click on any Single Flue Square or Rectangular Chimney Cap below to find the range of flue sizes each model will fit.

Still have questions about just what type of flue you have or which chimney cap you should select? Just call our friendly Chimney Cap Experts at 888-834-7375 or e-mail us your question or concerns.

 

 

 

If your single flue does not stick up at least one inch, you can use either a top mount chimney cap (also known as a multi-flue chimney cap) or a single flue chimney cap with a set of "legs." The legs fit down inside the chimney flue and securely hold your chimney cap in most situations. We do not recommend the use of chimney caps with legs especially in areas with high winds. A top mount chimney cap is always a more secure choice if your single flue does not stick up at least an inch.

For single flues extend less than an inch above the chimney crown, a chimney cap with legs is an option.
If you have no flue above your chimney crown or a flue less than an inch tall, you might want a chimney cap with legs.
A single short flue can be covered with a top mount chimney cap that attaches to the chimney's crown, also known as a multi-flue chimney cap.  All top-mount chimney caps have FREE Shipping!

What to Measure if the Flue Is Less Than an Inch Tall:

  • If your flue does not stick up at least one inch and you want a chimney cap with legs, measure the outside length and width of your flue. Each Single Flue Square or Rectangular Chimney Cap with Legs has its own handy chart on our website, FireplaceMall.com, to help you find the range of sizes each model will fit.
     
  • If your flue does not stick up at least one inch and you want a chimney cap that mounts to the top crown on your chimney, follow the measuring directions for top mount chimney caps (also known as multi-flue chimney caps.)
