If there are chirping noises coming from your fireplace, it’s likely that you have birds in your chimney. This is common during the spring. Depending on where you live, however, many birds are protected under the Migratory Bird Act and cannot be removed from your chimney. The birds will leave in the fall, but we want to help you protect your fireplace when the next spring season hits.

To protect your chimney from this problem, have a chimney cap installed with a spark arrestor. It is crucial that the chimney cap has a metal mesh attached to it so that there is no point of entry for animals or other debris. Plus, chimney caps also provide added benefits. They help prevent against water penetration, and the mesh siding (spark arrestor) will prevent sparks from jumping out of your chimney and causing a fire on your roof.
