If your Stamford home has a factory-built chimney, one of the ways it is protected is by a chimney chase cover at the top. Typically made of galvanized steel, chimney chase covers (also called chimney chase tops) provide a barrier to protect interior areas of the chimney from damaging rain and debris.
The main concern with these components is rust, which is fairly common over the years with galvanized steel products. Because the very top of your chimney is an area you rarely if ever see, rust can progress to the point where your entire chimney is at risk of water damage.
Our crew deals regularly with rusted chimney chase tops and the ensuing damage. Common problems we encounter include:
Water-damaged fireboxes, chimney structures, and adjacent building materials of the home
Flue liner deterioration that can lead to a house fire or a chimney fire
Mold outbreaks that begin in unseen areas of the chimney structure and can be a major health risk to humans and animals
Minor chimney chase cover repairs sometimes can be made, but when rust is the problem, it’s often best to replace your chase top with a new, stronger version.
Outfit Your Stamford Chimney with a New Stainless Steel Chimney Chase Cover
When it’s time to replace a rusted or damaged chimney chase cover, we recommend going with a long-lasting stainless steel cover made from 316 UL Listed stainless steel. These components are ultra-durable and come with a lifetime warranty.
Our crew takes great pride in adding new chase tops to our Stamford customers’ chimneys. The stainless steel covers we install not only provide peak performance and security, but they also look beautiful sitting atop a chimney.
