Something as simple as a chimney cap or chase top is extremely important to the safety of your family and the lifespan of your chimney. When properly maintained, your chimney cover provides multiple benefits:
Chimney caps and chase covers provide similar benefits, keeping water, debris, and animals out of your chimney flue.
A chimney cap is a metal topper that covers the opening of your flue. Chimney caps also prevent burning embers from landing on your roof and other nearby flammable objects.
A chase cover generally comes standard with a pre-fabricated or factory-built fireplace. The chase cover fits over your chimney chase to seal the flue. A rusty chimney chase top can cause discoloration on your chimney.
Due to their low requirements of maintenance and their long lifespans, stainless steel chase covers have become a popular choice for homeowners.
when a chase cover comes standard with a pre-fabricated fireplace, most of the time it is made with cheap galvanized sheet metal that will rust and likely need to be replaced every 7 to 10 years. The most popular materials used to construct chimney chase tops are galvanized steel, copper, stainless steel, and aluminum.
Bone Dry Roofing recommends stainless steel chimney caps and chase covers above the other materials due to its low cost and excellent durability. Stainless steel is corrosion resistant and nearly rustproof, which means stainless steel chimney caps and covers require little to no maintenance. We offer chimney covers and caps in a variety of sizes and colors and will install a chase top to match the exact specifications of your chimney chase.
Nothing destroys a chimney faster than water damage. A damaged or deteriorated chimney chase top or chimney cap allows in water that will only further the damage.
