What are the measurements of the top (roof) of this Duro-Shield 17 x 21 aluminum band-around brick single flue chimney cover?

I was wondering which chimney cap you would recommend for this chimney: it has the flue at the top. The measurements around the narrower part are roughly 16" x 19", and around the wider brick part 20" x 21". I had my eye on the Duro-Shield 17" x 21". Would this be a good fit?

Answer:While this cap would fit the 21 inch side of your chimney, it could not adjust large enough to fit the 20 inch side. Likewise, we have a 21 inch x 21 inch version of the same. However, it will not adjust down to the 20 inch side of the chimney, either.
Due to this odd middle ground, it may be better to go with a cap that will fit around the clay flue tile in which your damper is currently mounted.

My brick chimney is 16 x 21 1/2 x 16 1/2 x 21 1/2 so it is not a perfect rectangle and it has no liner with about a 1" rolled mortar crown. Would this Duro-Shield 17 x 21" aluminum band-around brick single flue chimney cover work for me?

Would you be able to custom make this cover for my chimney? We just came through Hurricane Isaac and my cover got blown off the roof. The dimensions of my chimney are larger than the cover you guys offer, something like 27 by 23. I would measure to be exact if you can make one for me.

Answer:We can indeed custom fabricate a chimney cap for your needs. Please provide the outer dimensions of your chimney flue, as well as the outer dimensions of the masonry.

Do you know how this cap would hold up on a fuel oil furnace chimney?
By eFireplaceStore on June 25, 2014
Answer:This cap should do well for a fuel oil chimney. Aluminum, along with 316 stainless steel, are the two materials that hold up best. Stainless steel will be the most durable over the long run, but aluminum will offer years of service before heavy corrosion sets in.

Do you have any caps that might fit the enclosed chimney? lengths are 19 and 18 9/16 and widths are 17 5/16 and 17 5/8.
By Will M. on October 18, 2016
Answer:If the dimensions are 19" L x 17 5/16" for one and 18 9/16" x 17 5/8" for the other, the cap in question would work for each.

I have an 8 x 12 single flue brick chimney. It burns primarily wood. Is aluminum okay for cap material?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 23, 2012
Answer:Aluminum caps are indeed acceptable for use as a low cost alternative for wood burning applications. However, they usually do not have as long of a service life when compared to copper or steel.
