Cowls and other products can be supplied and fitted in Dublin and Wicklow.
Cowls & Pots (All Cowls and pots are made in Ireland)
It is important to install the correct terminal for the flue. A cowl is usually required for a specific purpose i.e. to overcome downdraft, prevent birds nesting or protect the flue from weathering. We supply and install cowls for all requirements. For people wishing to cap off a chimney that is no longer in use, we supply the correct vented terminal cap which will prevent condensation in the flue. Sometimes they are mistakenly fitted on active flues, this is potentially hazardous and can void your home insurance.
A properly fitted chimney pot protects the stack from adverse weathering and prevents deterioration of the brickwork at the top of the chimney. A pot also improves draft in a flue and prevents a degree of downdraft and water ingress into the flue. We supply and install pots to suit any chimney.
Please note many downdraft issues may be caused by inadequate ventillation, a second chimney in the building, a cold flue, the chimney terminating in a high pressure region or maybe a room air inlet on the leeward side of the building many more potential problems. A site survey may be needed to investigate and resolve the problem.
