Flue Stretcher Chimney Cap
Flue Stretchers are similar to to chimney caps in that they are made to protect the interior of your chimney from the elements as well as wild animals. The main reason you would prefer a flue stretcher chimney cap over the traditional chimney cap is, because you have two flues side by side and one the flues may be drawing down exhaust into your home from the neighboring flue. When this is happening a flue stretcher is needed to raise the flue high enough to prevent the crossflow of gasses from flue to flue. Flue stretchers are also used to increase the height of the flue above roofs or other structures which will improve draft and reduce downdrafts. We carry both copper and stainless steel flue stretchers shown below. Both Copper and Stainless steel will last a lifetime, it is a matter of personal preference.
