Damaged chimney caps can allow water inside of your chimney, which can slowly cause damage to the inside of your chimney. The joints that are between the liner tiles will continue to break down over time. This erosion will eventually let heat, gases, or creosote enter your home. Additionally, water will freeze and thaw, leading to expansion damage. A well-maintained chimney cap will prevent moisture from entering the top and causing problems.
