Why do you need a chimney cap?

During a routine inspection, my technician found this little guy living in between the flue tiles of a very deteriorated chimney. This, along with the severe deterioration, is the reason why a stainless steel chimney cap is always highly recommended. The single flue cap on the one flue definitly was not doing the job and what's worse, it over hangs the other flue and was funneling water right down it. We at the Duxbury Chimney Sweep do stainless steel chimney cap installations.
