Designer Lid Outside Mount Copper Chimney Caps are well suited for chimneys of any size and with any number of flues.
Optional 20 ounce copper corner braces, as seen in the photo on the right, can be added if you desire.
The pitched, designer lids can be easily removed for annual chimney cleaning. The hip and ridge designer lids of the
outside mount chimney caps are constructed of heavy duty 20 ounce copper.
We offer ten styles of pitched, designer lids from which you can select for the exact
look you want for your custom outside mount copper chimney cap. See A throughJ
below. The first number above each image, such as 3/12, is that roof's pitch. The second number, such as 14, is the degree of the roof's angle. Many consider the
slope of the home's roof when selecting the slope of the hip and ridge designer lid for their chimney caps. (F is the most popular.)
Regardless of the pitch you select to top your Designer Lid Outside Mount Copper Chimney Cap, you can also select a custom lid overhang for the chimney cap.
Three inches is a standard lid overhang for hip and ridge style chimney cap lids, but your lid overhang could be larger or smaller, as you prefer.
The base or skirt (the section that will attach to the sides of the chimney) of the
Designer Lid Copper Outside Mount Chimney Caps is also made of heavy duty 20 ounce solid copper. You can specify both the horizontal skirt width (how far in from the outer edge of the mesh screening will be) and the vertical skirt height
(how far down the chimney the skirt goes.) The standard horizontal skirt width is 2 inches. The standard vertical skirt height is 3 inches.
The heavy duty, solid 20 ounce copper mesh screening, which should be at least 5 inches tallerthan your tallest flue
with a recommended 8 inch minimum to assure good fireplace drafting, keeps animals and debris out of your home. Specify the screen height you want for your Custom Copper Outside Mount Designer
Lid Chimeny Cap up to 24 inches tall. If you need a height taller than 24 inches, a copper riser can be added at the base of the mesh.
Is the top of the cement part around your flues (the crown) more than an inch above the chimney bricks? If so
, you will need an elevation between the top edge of the vertical skirt and the bottom of the screen mesh.
The image at the left shows a standard, flathorizontal skirt. Unless you specify an elevation, your Custom
Copper Outside Mount Designer Lid Chimney Cap will be made with the standard, flat horizontal skirt with no elevational rise.
To the right, above, is a horizontal skirt with an elevation. The dotted brown line represents the number of inches your elevation might need to be. It is the height
from where the bottom of the mesh screen will be to the top of the first row of chimney bricks.
Standard copper mesh screening has 3/4 inch holes and is appropriate for most
chimney caps. If, however, the outside mount copper chimney cap will be used in California or another wildfire prone areas, the chimney cap will be made with the
smaller 5/8 inch mesh screening that is required by state or local code.
Tapcon drill bits and tapcon screws are includedfor easy attachment of your
copper outside mount chimney cap . Or, if you prefer, designer hip and ridge lid copper outside mount chimney caps can attached with discontinuous beads of chimney cap adhesive.
