The Draft King Black Galvanized Chimney Cap is a good cap for cost conscience homeowners looking to protect their homes from weather and animal invasion. A 24 gauge lid tops off the 18 gauge 5/8" mesh screen which is 6 1/2" high. What makes these caps unique are the placement of the mounting bolts. Located in the corners, the mounting bolts are recessed in order to give themselves a level grip against the flue tile.
Note: Chimney caps are required to have no larger than 5/8" mesh openings in the state of California. If not in California, the manufacturer may not allow you to purchase a chimney cap with less than a 3/4" mesh due to concerns about Condensation freezing over the openings in cold climates and affecting proper draft.
