Chimney Chase Cover Replacement

Custom Chase Cap

Prefabricated fireplaces include a chase cover – which does exactly as the name implies: it sits atop the chimney’s chase, protecting it from the intrusion of water and other undesirable elements. Chase covers are commonly constructed from galvanized metal, and although the service life of those products will vary, you might see problems with your galvanized chase cover in as little as five years.

The first indication of a problem with your chase cover is the appearance of streaks of rust. The cover may have been installed in a way that allows water to pool, or there might be holes due to screws or nails that have allowed water in — regardless, once water makes its way in, it begins eating away at your cover and getting inside your chase, which could lead to more damage (including damage to the walls in your home). The rust is telling you that a repair is needed, stat.

Chase Cover Replacements From Home Safe Hearth & Chimney, Inc.

Replacement chase covers come in a variety of different materials, all of which offer different benefits. We carry a wide array of chase covers which can be properly installed by our experienced technicians.

  • Galvanized metal – This is the most commonly used and the most affordable material for a chase cover, but its durability varies — you can usually expect a galvanized cover to have between five and fifteen years of fully-functional service life.
  • Stainless steel – Stainless steel, while more expensive than galvanized metal, is highly durable and attractive. You won’t experience the same rust issues with a stainless steel chase cover, and it’ll take your chimney from looking rusty and worn to fresh and new.
  • Copper – Copper is another durable choice, and can be a beautiful addition to your home, particularly as the copper develops a colorful patina over time.

Those are just a few options – whatever your chase cover needs, Home Safe Hearth & Chimney, Inc. can help.
