Chimney Chase Covers

Your chimney chase is the decorative surrounding that covers the flue on the inside of your chimney. Usually made of wood or metal, chimney chases tend to rust, rot, and damage over time—exposing the inside of your chimney to animals, debris, and water. Your chimney is constantly exposed to outdoor elements like wind, rain, sleet, and snow, while also being subjected to harmful gases that are by-products from using your fireplace.

The solution? Chimney chase covers.

What Is a Chimney Chase Cover?

Chimney chase covers are exactly what they sound like—tops that go over your chimney chase. Also known as chimney chase caps or chimney chase tops, they come in several materials, including copper, stainless steel, and galvanized steel.

At Capitol Chimney Service, we recommend installing stainless steel covers on your chimney chase to prevent rusting—which happens frequently with galvanized steel covers and copper caps.

The Benefits of Installing a Chimney Chase Cover

When you install a chimney chase cover, it can help keep rain, snow, animals, and other debris out of your chimney. These chase covers are an inexpensive way to protect your home from chimney leaks, and also protect your chimney from potentially costly chimney damage.
