Chimney Chase cover Replacement

Chimney chase cover replacement is one of our most popular services. The chase pan is the solid metal sheet that covers the top of a pre-fab, or metal chimney. 

The chimney ‘chase’ is the box, or body of the chimney that you see when you look at your chimney.

In the case of prefabricated chimneys, the outer box, or chase, is just for looks. It serves no purpose except for style. 

The top of the chase would be wide open to rain, snow, animals, wind and other elements, if you didn’t have a ‘Pan’ or metal cover.

The chase pan is usually made of galvanized steel, though it can be ordered in Stainless Steel.  

We have found that a properly installed, galvanized chase cover, will last for several decades. We don’t normally recommend Stainless Steel, but it’s available if you so choose.cover

Rain Pan for Pre- Fab

The rain pan for a metal chimney must be installed properly or it won’t last very long. 

Water is the enemy of the pan. If water sits on the pan, it will rust through eventually.

Most pans develop tiny pin holes as they rust. When water is sitting on the pan, the pinholes allow it to drip inside the chase. 

So it is important to install the chase pan with an built in slope. The slope allows the water to run off, just like your roof.

The inside of the chase is only wood and siding. It would be like letting a hose drip water inside your walls. 

It will cause all kinds of damage and possibly lead to black mold.

Chimney Chase Cover Rust

If you see rust trails or stains on the side of the chase, it means there is so much rust on top that it mixes with the rainwater and drips off.

If you see rust on the side of your chimney, it is time to replace the pan.
You can get by for a little while with a little rust, but the damage being done to your house inside the walls is happening where you can’t see it.

So put it off at your own risk.

Chimney Chase Covers Manufactured

Give us a call and we will handle your chimney chase cover replacement from start to finish.

We come and measure first. Then we build you a brand new, water proof chase pan. We will install it and guarantee that it doesn’t leak. 

If installed properly, a pan should give you 30 to 40 years (or even more) of trouble free service.

As long as it is installed properly, it will probably outlast several new roofs during it’s lifetime.

On the other hand, if your pan leaks because of improper design, installation, or rust damage, you could be doing massive damage to wood and sheetrock inside your house.

Check your insurance to see if they cover water damage from your chimney….they may not.
