Hire a Pro Advice: Install a Chimney Cap

Get help finding a handyman to install a chimney cap on your roof.

By Gene and Katie Hamilton

Installing a chimney cap can be done by just about any handyman who agrees to work on the roof of a house. You'll usually find they advertise in local newspapers and are listed as "Handyman Service" in the Yellow Pages. If there's a bulletin board in a hardware store or home center you may find postings of their business cards. Plan to call a handyman service when you have more than one job. Often they charge a minimum fee to cover the expense of traveling so make it worthwhile for you and the handyman. If you have to take off work to be home for the work, you'll benefit from having more than one job on your house "to do" list checked off.
