Chimney Chase Covers Vs Chimney Crowns

Chimney Chase Covers

A chimney chase cover is a metal covering that is installed over a chimney chase, which is a frame or structure that houses metal or prefabricated chimneys. The primary role of a chimney chase cover is to prevent water and debris from entering the chimney chase and causing damage. It is typically made of metal, such as stainless steel or copper, and is custom-fabricated to fit the dimensions of the chimney chase.

Chimney Crowns

A chimney crown is a masonry surface that covers the top of a chimney. Its primary purpose is to provide protection for the chimney by preventing water from entering and causing damage. Chimney crowns are typically made of concrete and are sloped to allow water to run off and away from the chimney. They are an essential component in maintaining the integrity of your chimney and ensuring its longevity.

Chimney Chase Cover FAQs

While it is possible to install a chimney chase cover yourself, it is strongly recommended to hire a professional chimney technician for proper installation. Chimney chase covers require precise measurements, correct sizing, and secure attachment to ensure effective protection against water and debris. Professional installation will ensure optimal performance and longevity of your chimney chase cover.

Chase covers protect prefab chimneys by providing a durable and weather-resistant barrier against water, snow, and debris. They prevent moisture from entering the chimney structure and causing rust or corrosion on the metal components of the prefab chimney. By keeping out water and debris, chase covers help maintain the integrity and lifespan of prefab chimneys.

Chase covers are typically made of metal, such as stainless steel, aluminum, or copper. These materials are chosen for their durability, weather resistance, and ability to withstand extreme temperatures. Stainless steel is a popular choice due to its longevity and resistance to rust and corrosion.

Low-quality chase covers, usually made of materials like aluminum, can deteriorate quickly and become prone to rust and corrosion. This can lead to holes, chimney leaks, and rust streaks on the chimney or home exterior. Additionally, low-quality chase covers may not provide proper protection against water and debris, resulting in potential damage to the prefab chimney.

The lifespan of a chimney chase cover depends on various factors, including the material used and weather conditions. However, as a general recommendation, it is advisable to have your chimney chase cover inspected annually and replaced if signs of damage or deterioration are present. Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can help extend the lifespan of your chimney chase cover.
