Chimney Chase Cover Noyack


Chimney Chase Cover IN Noyack

A chimney chase cover is a cap (usually stainless or galvanized steel, copper or aluminum) used solely for a factory-built, prefab fireplace chimney’s flue top. Chimney chase covers (also known as top pans) cover the outermost top of the flue opening and are therefore subject to more of Noyack‘s weather than any other part of the chimney and tend to need more inspections more often. 

Chimney Cap, Chase and Cover Replacement

Just this week we received an email from a Noyack homeowner who waited too long to replace his rusting chimney chase cover. Because he waited so long, everything else needed to be replaced too… we replaced the chimney chase, the chase cover and the chase cap.


Don’t get us wrong, everything now looks, works and functions beautifully, but a simple chimney inspection by a pro like us a couple of  years earlier would have saved this Noyack homeowner hundreds of extra dollars this week.

Do You Need A New Chimney Chase Cover?

It’s smarter and more cost-effective to buy a high quality chase cover. When purchased wisely and installed correctly, a chimney chase cover will last for a very long time.


Chase Cover Materials To Think About

There are four types of chimney chase materials: galvanized steel, aluminum, copper and stainless steel. Galvanized steel covers are the least expensive; unfortunately, they rust quickly and need to be replaced within a few years. Aluminum covers don’t have the same rusting issues as their galvanized counterparts, however they’re not typically used for this function simply because the metal is too soft. Copper is, by far, the highest quality choice and is accompanied by the largest price tag as well; if you’re in the market for that type of look (and can afford the additional cost associated with it), you can’t go wrong with copper. Stainless steel is the strongest of the four materials. It costs a bit more up front than galvanized steel, however, the mere fact that it won’t rust and should never need to be replaced again more than makes up for the increased initial investment.
  • Galvanized steel: the lowest cost – will rust quickly and need to be replaced soon after installation so it’s usually best not to use.
  • Aluminum: won’t rust – but is generally too soft for a chase cap. As a practical matter it’s not a good choice.
  • Stainless steel: the strongest choice – costs more than galvanized steel – but will last forever. Stainless steel is considered the best choice.
  • Copper: the top quality choice – but the price tag reflects that. Copper chase covers are generally very expensive.

Signs Your Chase Cover Needs A Repair


  • There’s water flowing into the chimney
  • There’s water pooling on the top of your chimney chase cover
  • Rust is visible from the outside (which means it’s worse on the inside!)
  • There’s obvious damage to chase cover itself
