The Choice of Stainless Steel or Galvanized Chase Covers
One of the greatest things about a Stainless Steel Chase Cover is the Lifetime Warranty that comes with it. Many of the old school chase covers are made of galvanized metal and these do rust over time and have to be replaced. Stainless steel will not rust and will last the lifetime of your home and chimney system or be replaced under the warranty. Of course, we also carry galvanized chase covers. They are less expensive and a viable alternative.
What is a Chase Cover For Anyway
If you are wondering what a chase cover is for, it is a metal shield that covers the top of your chimney, or chase, to prevent rainwater, debris and animals from entering into the chase. There are holes in the chase for the smoke to be released into the atmosphere. Covers come in all sizes and we recommend getting your sweep to do the measuring and installation so your warranty will be backed up by a certified chimney technician.
