What Is a Chimney Chase Cover?

Unless you’re a professional chimney inspector, product terminology may confuse you. Some industry specialists use the terms “chase cover” and “chimney cap” to mean the same thing. Here’s the difference between the two:

  • chimney chase cover, or top pan, is a fitted metal covering for your chimney chase (the full exterior housing for your flue and fireplace). It protects your chase from moisture.
  • chimney cap, or topper, fits directly over the flue so animals, pests, and debris can’t enter.

Signs That Your Chimney Chase Cover Needs Replacement

When you live in a house for a long period, your chimney’s chase covers begin to rust from overexposure to rain, snow, and ice. Over time, the metal corrodes. At this point, you’ll see noticeable rust on the cover followed by metal pitting. Both problems indicate you need a new cover.

  • Copper and stainless steel covers (each offers a lifetime anti-rust/corrosion warranty)
