Chimney cowls, rainwater and bird guards
As can be seen from this old advertisement, cowls have been fitted to chimneys for over 100 years, and are designed to overcome traditional as well as modern everyday problems. They may be fitted for numerous reasons.
Chimneys in old houses suffer deteriation due to age and chemical attack and the fitting of an inappropriate chimney cowl or pot can worsen the situation, leading to potentially dangerous events.
Left uncapped, disused chimneys are prone to a number of major problems arising from exposure to the elements and blockage by nesting birds. Fitting a cap provides instant protection against these problems, potentially saving hundreds of pounds on costly repairs.
