Product as good as advertised. Great customer service.

Excellent product, delivered promptly, would purchase products in the future if needed.

Chimmney Top Cover

This is a well built product with a very secure fastening system. We drilled holes 1/4 of the way though the Chimmney tile to allow the boltss to securely grip in case of high winds that we recieve often. This would not be nessacary in most locations but we live on a hill. I would recomend this product and purchase it again if I ever needed on again.

Gelco Black Galvanized Chimney Cap

Good product. Strong. Easy to install. Only issue I had was the nuts to secure the cap, which should be welded to the frame, were not properly welded on one of the three caps I bought. I installed it anyway amd it is working fine. Would recommend purchase.

Chimmney Cover

The price was right and it fit very well. The finish was nice and the install was easy. I hope it lasts for years to come and I told my brother to order from your company for his chimmeny cover as well.

This time the chminey were expedited pretty fast . The previous times it was longer than a week . Great salesman great attidude and personality.

Gelco Black Galvanized Single-Flue Chimney Cap

Very easy to order, came within a few days. Fit like a glove.

Great product and fast service! Would highly recommend Woodland Direct!

evaluation of product

Chimney cover worked great. I have three chimneys that are on the same fireplace. I purchased two of these covers and one for the middle chimney that did not have a metal cover. All three fit perfectly. I spent around $225. I had an estimate for a contractor to cover the three chimneys and they want $800. I am very happy. The covers also keep out the racoons!

as advertised

Came fast and packaged well. Exactly as advertised, should last me for years, I bought longer bolts to fit my odd ball size flume. Should work well

Chimney cap

Easy install and fit great.

Gelco Black Galvanized Single-Flue Chimney Cap

Just installed it. Very easy to install. 4 screws. I spoke with someone on the phone to confirm the size to fit my Chimney. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff on the phone for help. Fits perfectly. Easy to install. Shipped immediately since this item was in stock. Looks great. The reviews of this product helped sell me. Price was very reasonable. Will update you in a few years if it holds up like promoted.

Chimney Cap

I was very satisfied with my purchase. My service rep was very helpful and informative.




Great workmanship

Exactly as promised

Product looks great, is well built (clean welds, clean finish) and was easy to install. I shopped all local box stores for an oversized flu cap and struck out. One quick internet search led me to Woodland and they had exactly what I needed with very a helpful salesman to confirm the fit and finish. Birds will no longer call my chimney home!!

Chimney Cap

Good quality for the price; thicker gauge steel than expected. The best part, however, was that it arrived in two days! Super-fast shipping and a quality product.

Ordered this item on Monday and it arrived by Saturday. The contractor removed our rusted out cap and replaced it with this galvanized one without a hitch. It comes with a 7 yr warranty.

8 inche square (liner dimension) chimney caps

I have 2 chimneys that are masonry around 8 inch square ceramic liner. Bought 2 caps. They install easily (10 minutes each after climb up on the roof). look nice no problems. My chimney sweep said that I would have been better to buy stainless as these will eventually rust out, but they are a big improvement over no caps. Exactly as advertised. Fast delivery by UPS

It was a good experience all around. I like the readiness of conversation with the sales person who facilitated the order. Then the package came on time. When I opened it, I appreciated the quality of the product. Very satisfied. Holiday greetings.

Great Quality

Sturdy, attractive for my chimney. Had a bit of difficulty navigating the web site for exact size to fit, but called Customer Service, pleasant immediate help from staff.


Great fit and fast shipment.


Installation was very easy.

Flue Cap

Great product. Heavy duty. Not a cheap piece. Good price for the product.

Chimney cap

It was exactly as described and pictured. Reasonably priced! Fast delivery too! We couldn't find one at any home improvement stores even though the size was common, they only had round ones.This is definitely our go to store!


Super fast shipping great product at a great price would buy from again anytime


What's there to review? It's a chimney cap. The size worked for the flue. Done. But the service from Woodland Direct was great! They communicated well, they shipped promptly. Hard to beat that.

Quality Product

Well constructed, sturdy. Well worth it. Very easy to install. A few minor bruises with some scraped paint on the top. No big deal. Recommended.


Looks good. Packed well. And seems to work as I hoped. Just installed about a week ago.


Built very solid, perfect fit. Simple to install. Super fast shipping. I would recommend.

Gecko chimney cap

Product is of the highest quality. Fit and finish are of high quality. Thoroughly pleased with the product

Chimney Caps

I bought 2 caps. One 8" and one 13". They shipped separately but both came within a few days and were in great shape. They installed easily and look great. I'm very happy with this purchase and the process of buying online and shipping.


The single-flue chimney cap is an excellent product and is everything that Woodland said it would be. I had excellent assistance from the company in making my selection and I am extremely happy with the product.

Fit as ordered and received timely.

Chimney Caps

One of the two boxes had its top partially crushed to the point where one of the spot welds on a pin assembly that holds the unit in place was broken. I was able to install the unit by adjusting the pins on the opposite side to hold the unit in place.

Measuring is not everything...

I measured my flue liner where it extends from the masonry chimney -- a 17x17 inch terra cotta square pipe with rounded corners. After that I began my search for a proper chimney cap. I ordered this one because it said 17x17 inches. However, in reality it must probably fit up to 20x20 inches. I ran the set screws all the way in on all sides and it did not bite until the last turn of the last screw. I'm sure it is holding, but just in case, I'll soon go back up and add some metal shims with double stick tape to ensure the screws are not at their limit of adjustment. The finish is good and the price was very reasonable. You can paint to match your colors or leave it flat black as I did.

Gelco Black Galvanized Single-Flue Chimney Cap

Good description, quick shipping, very easy/quick install. Used for three months so far and happy.

Chimney Cap

Excellent fit, well made - clamps down securely and easily!

8" won't fit 8"!

Very well made, but: Do not call it an 8" chimney cap! It does not fit over my 8" flue tile... too small! Did not see the actual min./max. diameters on the website when ordering. I ended up cutting these nice new caps with a grinder in several places, removing the threaded tabs, then prying them open to fit over the 8" flue tile. Held them on with large hose clamps. Also, I have a double-flue chimney, and the overhang of the 'roof' on this cap prevents side-by-side placement. Had to cut about 2" off one side of each cap.

review of chimney cap

Could be sturdier in shipping. Dented on one corner but I was desperate so I settled and used it anyway.

Durable Cap

Well made and heavier weight than expected.

Arrived with bent corner, assume it was damaged during shipment. Screws for installation were not provided as it shown in the picture. But we fixed! Thank you! It is a good product.


Very beautiful design. Good solid tin material and strong joints, although slightly out of square.

round chimney cover

Hi. We haven't installed it yet. Is for another property in another state. Unable to review at this time.Thank you.

works great for what I needed it for..used it on top of a fire pit/ outdoor fireplace



gelco chimney cap

Well built but way too small of a top cover to really keep the weather out. The web site should publish the actual dimensions of the top covers of the chimney caps, so I don't have to go thru a return process and pay extra postage. if Woodland doesn't do this, than it should be free postage for a return!!!


didnt fit and cost me 20 bucks to send back.

chimney cap

The sales rep Drew was extremely helpful in answering my questions regarding size issues and also asked me some i didnt forsee. The cap was delivered as advertised and with a simple iinstallation I was done. Thanks again, to WoodLand Direct , a company I highly recommend and will be using in the future.

Chimney Cap

Cap fits. Just wish there was more information on the tolerance of sizes that it worked for.
