These flue style chimney covers shown below may look great, but may not offer the best performance, compared to the full chimney caps I have designed over the years. This is due to an exhaust restrictions. The weather-head on top should have 6X the spark arrest screen surface area of the flue diameter. As the direction of the wind changes, each of the 4 sides should have at least 1.5 times more screen area than the flue, since the screen will offer some restriction. This 1.5 X 4 sides = 6X that of the flue. These designs tend to not allow for this much spark arrests screen.

Another issue to consider with these designs is the flue draw factor. I hear from many clients how their backyard fireplace has a terrible draw and they see a lot of smoke coming out the front. This is because most of them have a very short flue of less than 8'. Like with a hotair ballon, you need more cubic feet of hot air to have a sufficient enough lift. Chimneys in a 2-story house have a lot better draw than with a single story house. The size of the flue X the length = square cubic lift potential. More the better. Think of how a single helium ballon can only lift a small plastic toy.

Just click on the photos below to see and read more about each project

It has been a gradual process over the years to refine this process of how I design and build these to last and hold up under the elements, while being simple enough to remove for cleaning the flue when required. I will supply the stainless steel screws for attachment.
