Chimney Pots, Cowls, and Cages
As part of our chimney services, we supply and fit a wide range of chimney pots, cowls and cages in the Kerry area.
Chimney pots should be correctly fitted to protect the stack from adverse weathering. Adverse weathering can cause holes or cracks leading to a damp chimney. The danger with having a damp chimney is that your chimney brickwork can start to rapidly deteriorate causing the stack to become dangerously unstable.
If you notice the top part of your stack is a different colour to the rest of the stack, or that your pot is covered in green moss, it’s time to give us a call for a chimney pot replacement.
If you leave it too long, the bricks can swiftly turn soft and brittle and can start to fall away. Whether we are replacing an old chimney pot or installing a chimney pot for the first time, we always recommend capping the pot. This will help in keeping the water and birds out.

Similarly, we are able to supply and install cowls and cages to meet all requirements. Cowls and cages are used to overcome downdraft, prevent birds nesting and protect from weathering.
Bird cowls are one of our most popular requests for cowl installations. Birds and squirrel nests are both undesirable and dangerous as they can cause carbon monoxide build up by blocking the flue gases from escaping. Furthermore, they can present a health hazard with maggots, insects, and fungal spores living within the nests.
If your chimney is experiencing downdraught, we can provide a quick and easy solution by installing an anti-downdraught cowl. Oftentimes, we’ve identified these problems for our customers when carrying out a chimney cleaning.
For chimneys that use gas or wood burning stoves with or without flexible liners there are a number of cowl solutions which we are more than happy to discuss with you.
