Caps & Cowls

Caps & cowls are important components of your chimney, acting as protective covers that  safeguard against both water ingress and wildlife. Sandpits can offer guidance on selecting an appropriate cowl for your specific requirements. We also offer full installation and replacement service for chimney caps & cowls.

Chimney Cowls

What is a Cowl?

A chimney cowl is essentially a cap installed atop your chimney. Its primary purposes are to block rain, snow, and animals from entering your home, whilst helping to direct smoke exhaust upwards and out. 

Chimney cowls are instrumental in preventing the entry of water and moisture, which can lead to corrosion and compromise the chimney's structural integrity. Additionally, cowls act as a barrier to deter animals from entering and potentially nesting within the chimney, which poses both a nuisance and fire risk.


We have a huge selection of new & used wood burning, electric, gas and multi-fuel stoves in a variety of sizes and styles.


Thinking of having a wood-burning stove fitted or having your fireplace renovated or changed? Choose Sandpits for peace of mind.


We employ our own team of HETAS registered engineers to carry out servicing and maintenance of wood burning and multi-fuel stoves.
