Morgan's Low Profile Chimney Cap
small hole screen for a natural gas fireplace
Bend, Oregon (12/11)

I made this stylish low profile design w/6/12 hipped roof for Jim Morgan in Bend, Oregon to go over their wood chimney box that is covered with natural irregular stone, so it has a sealed internal pan to divert the rain water back outside that could get blown in through the screen.

The attachment base was built 35.75" X 42" ISD, and has a 1x6 hardwood base inside for a 37.5" X 43.75" OSD. The roof is 41.25" X 48" OSD. The final weight was 119.4#, which 93# was just copper = 74.4 sq' of the 20oz copper we used X $25 sq' = $1,860 for the copper portion alone.

Cost: $2,126.52 client pick up

Lawton's Pair of  Simplified Tuscany arch style
Saunderstown, Rhode Island
 (5/11)

This was a pair of simplified  Tuscany arch style chimney caps they wanted, yet simplified to control the cost to fit within their budget. Can you tell what the differences are? One detail that is very different is how this is the first I made with an elongated ridgeline to resemble a gable end roof like more to fit in with their house.

(attachment base 28" X 38" ISD)

Cost: $4,439.20 delivered to Saunderstown, Rhode Island

Subject: install complete


Hi David,
Wanted you to know that the caps were installed today. The weather was fine and the fit on both chimneys was absolutely perfect. Nancy and I are very pleased with the look of the caps, and the installers were all impressed with the quality of construction and the ease of installation.

I Will admit that when we opened the crate our reaction was one of '¯good grief, what have we done... they look so big!'.¯ But once installed, the cap proportions are well in keeping with the house shape and the extended cap roof line fits right in with the house roof line. Our conclusion is you get a 10 out of 10 score for looks, design, quality of construction.

Regards, Bruce and Nancy

Raban's Simple Square Flue Liner Mounted
Kent, Washington
 (10/10)

This was a small simple square chimney cap I was asked to build for a Contractor in Kent, Washington. This was designed to just slide down over the flue liner sticking up out of the top of their client's chimney.

(attachment base 12.25" ISD)

Cost: $461.25 delivered to Kent, Washington

Birger's 20oz Copper Tuscany triple arch style w/double tier base and a 6/12 hipped roof
Collinsville, Illinois  (9/10)

This is much like the larger chimney cap I made for a local client in Lake Oswego, but the difference besides being a little scaled down was that I made this one with a 2 stage base. Something I had not done for this style chimney cap before. This order was for Bernard & Debby Birger in Collinsville, Illinois. After finding my web site they had made a trip out here to visit their Daughter's family in Bend, Oregon, and stopped in to visit with me after getting off the plane here in PDX. They laid down a $2k deposit for the work they wanted done and said they would be back in September with a Motor-home and trailer to pick them up before heading back from visiting their Daughter again after she had the baby.

Cost: $5,316, which was $684 less than the 6k I had quoted

At the same time they also ordered a fancy gazebo roof cap w/a Merlin style finial and a large cover for their outdoor fire pit, as well as 18 post caps for the back patio railing.

Wolfgang Octagon Flue Cover 6/12 Flange Mount
S. W. Portland, Oregon
 (6/10)

This octagon 6/12 pitch roof mount screened vent
cover for kitchen, bathroom, or natural gas exhaust can be made to any roof angle, pipe size, or pipe length you need. This one had a 6.5" ISD to go over a 6" OSD pipe.

For a wood burning stove I would need to make this with a larger SS screen pattern, and the neck would need to be taller for the fire code of 2' above the roof that is within 10' to the side.


Cost was: $550

Pagano's 20oz & 32oz Copper
Lighthouse Style Chimney Cap
Seneca Falls, New York  (6/10)

This is the most detailed lighthouse style chimney cap I've built. It is for Robert and Sue Pagano in Seneca Falls, New York. After finding my web site he had a back yard fireplace built for this behind their lake home. This design has been a collaborative effort between the owners, the architects Guy and Lee, a lighting specialist John, and I.

The Client asked to not have the cost listed here, but you can contact me for that info

Witkiewicz's 20oz Copper
Covered Bridge Style Chimney Cap
Somers, New York
 (3/10)

This is a covered bridge style chimney caps are for Joe Witkiewicz in Somers, New York. He wanted a taller base/skirt than I normally make to cover the top 12" of the old brick chimney with a 1" copper pipe band across the base/skirt. I also made him a chimney flashing kit with a large cricket that spans the full 70" width of the upper side of his chimney to divert the rain and debris out to the sides. Install photos soon to be added.

Cost: $3,018.50 Delivered

Peabody's Pair of 20oz Copper
Simplified Tuscany Arch Style Chimney Caps
Westport, New York
 (3/10)

This set of 2 chimney caps are for Ed & Gloria Peabody in Westport, New York. They originally wanted fairly simple caps to minimize the cost, but at the last moment they decided to go for the simplified Tuscany arch style that has been so popular. Much like I did for my previous client: Reeves, but I made these with a 2" deeper inset spark arrest screening and the roof is 4" wider than these bases.

Cost: $4,597.80 Delivered

Blair's 20oz Copper Supper Pan w/Flue Cover & Chimney Cap
West Portland, Oregon
 (2/10)

This chimney cover is for Bob & Lori Blair in W. Portland, Oregon. As you see the cover on the left is rusty and caved in from the snow load we got the last few years. This new cover I'm built for them has the same angle as their house roof, so this will never be an issue again and will look more decorative up there.

Cost: $3,063.39 Installed

Nelson's Second 32oz & 20oz Copper
Bell Shaped Chimney Cap w/Finial
Tampa, Florida
 (12/09)

This is the second part of a set of 2 copper chimney caps made for Daniel Nelson in Tampa, Florida. This bell shape was made 34" wide across the lower rim and 22" tall w/o this finial. It is very difficult to form copper sheets with curvatures in 2 directions, so I built this w/16 faceted sides. We had a limited space under this tile covered housing between 4 columns. The base was made with a 3/4" oak plywood covered with copper to support the bell over a 16 gauge stainless steel screen cage between them, as if suspended 4" above the base/pan. It had to be strong enough to withstand Gayle force winds. This took me over 3 weeks to design and build, besides several diagrams and several dozen e-mail exchanged. This finial is from the new Smithsonian Collection.

Cost: $3,701.88 delivered

Swanson's Pair of 20oz Copper
Tuscany Arch Style Chimney Caps
Waco, Texas
 (10-11/09)

This set of 2 copper chimney caps w/inside pan and flue collar are for Gordon Swanson in Waco, Texas to be installed over their chimney boxes that are covered in cultured stone. They wanted these built in the same popular Tuscany arch style I've become so famous for. This makes the 16th chimney cap I've made in this same style with only minor variations and numerous improvements with each fabrication.

Final Cost: $9,034.28 for both chimney caps delivered
($285.72 less than originally quoted)

Bardana's Set of Two 20oz Copper
Tuscany Multi-Arch Style Chimney Caps
Lake Oswego, Oregon
 (10/09)

This set of 2 custom copper chimney caps are for a local client: Norma and Emil Bardana installed over their brick chimneys. The larger chimney is over 10' long. They wanted these built in my most popular Tuscany arch style, so I came up with this idea to make the larger chimney cap with 3 arches along the long sides for the first time. I used a photo of the Corker chimney cap to do some elaborate photo editing to make a composite photo in order to show them what it would look like before I started on it.

Cost: $8,863.28 for both chimney caps installed
($1,708 less than original quote)
