Chimney Chase Cover
Many homes in Matthews, NC, have a manufactured fireplace that typically includes a chimney chase cover installed on top of the chase. It is also sometimes referred to as a chimney chase top. The top cover is a vital part of the chimney system as it prevents moisture, leaves, twigs, and neighborhood wildlife from getting into the flue, damaging the chimney and fireplace.
Chase covers or tops are manufactured in various materials such as aluminum, copper, stainless steel, and others. When the cover rusts, corrodes or has other damage, it exposes the chimney system to potential water damage, structural problems, and health and safety risks. Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney is your local expert for chimney chase cover repair and installation services in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area, including Denver, NC, Albemarle, NC, and Gastonia, NC.
Difference Between a Chimney Cap and Chase Top
A chimney cap is an accessory like a rain hat, covering just the exposed flue opening. On the other hand, a chase top covers the entire top of a manufactured chimney that surrounds the exposed flue pipe. So, a manufactured chimney should have both a chimney chase cover and a chimney cap.
