What is a chimney head

The chimney head is the last part of the chimney located above the roofing. Its main function is to protect the mouth of the chimney from adverse climatic influences, but it can also have a decorative purpose. The chimney head can not serve just any material but a quality raw material that meets all the necessary standards, including frost resistance and watertightness. Previously, the heads were made to order, but today most people prefer prefabricated types, which are cheaper and more affordable, but they often lack the adornment.
