We Sell & Install Protective & Attractive Chase Covers
Today, prefabricated or factory-built chimney systems are more popular than ever. They are affordable, lightweight, and designed to be installed quickly, which makes them a popular choice for homeowners on a budget or those lacking an area strong enough to support a masonry chimney system. But just like their masonry counterparts, factory-built chimney systems rely on key components for protection against animals, debris, and moisture. In the masonry world, the chimney crown is what seals off the chimney top. But in the prefab world, this piece is referred to as the chase cover.
Chase covers are made of metal – typically galvanized steel, stainless steel, or copper – and sit right on top of the chase itself, which is the metal enclosure surrounding the chimney flue where it extends past the roof. Without a chase cover, your prefabricated chimney will be under constant attack from rain, snow, and sleet (depending on the season), and will be vulnerable to animal, bird, and debris entry. Not only can all of these things cause damage like rust and corrosion, but they can also easily lead to a house fire when they come into contact with the high heat produced by your fireplace, insert, or stove. All of these things can be dangerous and expensive to fix, which is why prevention is key.
