The chase covers of prefabricated or factory-built chimneys may be made of different materials from masonry chimneys, but they still require protection against leaks — and that’s what a chase cover is for. Chase covers are metal coverings that are installed at the top of the chase, just as a crown would be on a masonry chimney.
Unfortunately, many stock chase covers are aluminum, which simply isn’t designed to stand up to Florida downpours year after year. As a result, these covers quickly rust through and can leave your chase stained with rust and unprotected against leaks. Aluminum may seem like a good idea for your wallet, but stainless steel is a much better investment.
Here at Sootaway, we replace old worn, rusted-out chase covers with quality, rust-resistant stainless steel covers. We start by measuring your chase and creating a custom chase cover to fit perfectly. Once installed, you can expect your stainless steel chase cover to keep water out of your prefab chimney for years.
