Q: My flue is actually 7 5/8" by 11 1/2". Will your 8" x 13" adjust? A: The 8” side on this will work with dimensions between 6” and 8 ½”. Your 7 5/8” dimension falls right in the middle of this range. The 13” side works with dimensions between 11 ½” and 14”. If your dimension is any amount short of 11 ½” it may not work. We do offer a 30 return policy and you’ll easily be able to “dry fit” this to see if it works. If not, call our customer service team and we’ll take it back.
Q: How far does the overhang of the top project beyond the base? A: The size of the overhang varies depending on the size of the cap. The overhang could be between 1" to 2-1/2", approximately.

A perfect fit. Loved the quality of the product.

Gelco Chimney Cap Review

Very well made, great workmanship ! Very good base design, the six anchor screws made for a firm fit, even with flue tile opening being 12" X 16". Localvendors here are charging from $104-$160 for caps not as well made. Your web site is really what sold me on this product, I could tell right away from the picture that this cap had the best design features. The overall site layout is very well done (ie the size chart). It's great to see a US manufacturing firm do so well. Please pass on my thanks to Engineering,Fab,Q.C., & Web design

The chimney cover I bought from Woodland Direct is very nice. It's 100% Stainless Steel, it's very sturdy and nicely done. We looked for covers locally and they were floimsy and cheap metal and no one had the specil size we needed and they cost more!!!

high quality SS Chimney cap....easy installation.....prompt shipping.needed 2 so I got free shipping....thanks again

Well Built Topper

The Gelco chimney cap is a solid product, exceeding the quality of the items found in the big box stores. My cap was 8 x 8 and had just 1 fastening screw per side unlike the picture.

Gelco SS 5/8" mesh chimney caps

This product is outstanding. I see no comparison to this cap by any offering in either the local big box stores or the local hardware stores. Well designed and manufactured; excellent finishing; stout hardware. Only issue I dealt with was lack of install directions (although this doesn't require a rocket scientist!) I created a tightening sequence similar to torquing a series of bolts on a manifold and kept track of turns of the ratchet. Concern was in ensuring the cap was tight enough to prevent it from being blown off, yet not deflecting the material, nor stressing the terracotta flue. Transaction and shipping from Woodland was equally uneventful and quick. 5 Stars!!!

Received the Gelco chimney cap in the mail. It was constructed a lot better than the last one (Lowes special). Very easy to install. Perfect fit on my flue. Took less than 5 minutes to attach with all the screws that hold it in place. This should be the last cap that I ever have to buy. Thanks.

I was so pleased with my experience with Woodland Direct I went out of my way to find out how to compliment your store your service and your agent I wrote/sent you a glowing review about a month ago, did you not receive it?

Gelco SS 5/8" Mesh Chimney Cap

Delivery was fast! The Chimney Cap has nice appearance and appears to be constructed of high quality material. Was very easy to install . I highly recommend WOODLANDDIRECT.

This cap is made of very sturdy materials, more so than I anticipated. It attached to the chimney so securely I didn't need the optional brackets.

I am pleased with the purchase from your company. The chimney cap was well displayed on your website and correctly described as being compliant with buildiing codes in my state. The cap was extremely easy to install with the set screws already in place and the fit perfect to the diminsions required. The item arrived in a timely manner and was in excellent condition. Thank you for your excellent service.

well constucted with a great look.Fastening screws at all sides made mounting easy.

Gelco SS 5/8" Mesh Chimney Cap

This chimney cap is exceptionally well-made, and very easy to install. The 5/8" mesh will arrest sparks better than 3/4" mesh, the cap is tall for perfect airflow, it has a large roof surface area to prevent any rain into the flu, and the cap is entirely stainless steel, which will last for decades.This type of cap should be installed in any house near trees and understory that could be ignited by a spark.

Customer Service

The biggest thing that stands out is the superb knowledge and professionalism I experienced with Mr. Chris Dybowski thru the online chat and over the phone. He explained the proper way to measure my chimney, found the cap that works and fits within my budget. There was no pressure to buy an unneccesary or expensive cap. The cap showed up at the doorstep in mint condition, and was installed by myself in less than 5 minutes and works great. I will definitely be using this company for my further fire place needs.

Fantastic Fit-n-Finish

Before ordering this chimney cap, I had ordered one from the big orange store. Despite the specifications on the website, the cap did not fit. The Gelco I got from WoodlandDirect fit as promised, but it was also sturdier (not flimsy), the attachment screws were made for their function (nicely machined, with pointed ends), and the screw holes were reinforced by threaded tabs in the interior of the cap. Very nice! The cap is smartly designed, more solid than most chimney caps, looks fantastic, and the bespoke mounting screws made installation much easier. Strongly recommended.

Chimney Cap

Overall, dealing with Woodland was a satisfying experience. The advice they offered saved me from making a mistake with local codes, the shipping cost was well below what I could have arranged, and the product appears to be of excellent quality. It installed easily and looks as if it will last indefinitely.

Spark Arrestor/Flue Cap

This item met the somewhat hard to find California specifications for 5/8 inch screen where it is 3/4 inch in the rest of the civilized world. The product is well made and came with all required screws. It was delivered on time and, importantly, it fit perfectly.

Chimney Cap Success

I retired recently and have been working on those long overdue projects. Found this chimney cap and it had all the features I was looking for stainless being at the top of the list. The installation was pretty much painless as I had hoped. Took about an hour to install with no major issues. Highly recommend the cap and Woodland direct. Called for some installation advice and was guided the perfect direction.
