Chimney Caps


Does anyone have a good chimney cap site they would recommend?

I need a 13"x33" cap, about 12"-10" high.

I never thought about buying a chimney cap online. When I need them I go to the local sheet metal fab shop and have one built. Regardless of simple or fancy it needs to be.

This is my first home, I just want to make sure I go about doing this right the first time. I was curious if there was a good online retailer who's quality was better than what you could get at a "big box" store. I also didn't know the quality of the local stores, opposed to if there was one specific online store people had good experience with quality/price wise that they prefer to use over Home Depot or so. I actually never thought of a local metal fab shop, looks like I got something constructive out of this after all. I'll look some up, thanks.

Well that would be great if all chimneys were some stock size, not to mention out of square and other variables.

Since you have a good answer now, I don't suppose you'd mind if we closed this thread.
