Why Use Copper Chimney Pots
The taller the chimney, the better the draft, causing more smoke to be pulled out of the flue. Unless you want to build a chimney that reaches skyscraper heights, a chimney pot is an excellent solution to add this functionality. Chimney pots also keep out rain (which enters the home, causing mildew and mold), unwanted pests and beautifully covers what is typically an unsightly termination to the fireplace flue.
Historically, chimney pots were crafted from clay because this material was abundantly available. Clay, however, adds tremendous weight to the top of a chimney and is cumbersome to install. A European Copper chimney pot adds the height needed to draw smoke out of the flue without adding the additional weight.
A patina finish is applied to our chimney pots to enhance the aged appearance. This application is hand mixed so that no two finishes are identical, resulting in a more realistic and custom look for the home.
