About This Club

Ask a question, get an answer. Pretty simple. (inspired by the old board)

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Good lord that things looks insane. I knew about chimney regulations in regards to height, etc. Just never heard of a high-wind cap. Honestly I have no idea what is on my chimney. I never paid attention to it. I guess I will have to get out and look at it. I need it inspected anyway.

    High wind chimney caps

    From what I’ve read, chimneys have to be at least 3 feet higher than the roof where the come through and at least 2 feet higher than any roof within 10 feet. They also have to have some kind of cap. Thinking of getting this. I don’t want one with moving parts like the wind vane ones.
  4. I have never even considered this. Is there a regulation regarding this? I don't even know what is on my chimney. We don't use it much, but it would be good to know.
  5. Anyone have any experience with them and do they work? I'm tired of not having a fire whenever it blows above 10 mph.
