Why Buy Stainless Steel Chase Covers?
Wait a second, what is a chase cover you ask? A chase cover is a metal covering designed to keep unwanted critters, debris, and water from entering your home through the top of your chimney chase. Most chimney chases come with a chase cover, but not one that will last a long time.
Stainless Steel vs. Galvanized Steel Chase Covers
Galvanized chase covers look unsightly even though they are high up on your roof. Appearance aside, they don’t do the same job a stainless steel chase covers can. Rusting causes a slow deterioration of the outer surface of the chase cover, making it less effective over time. When your chase cover rusts, your home is left unprotected from the elements.
Compared to a stainless steel chase cover, a galvanized cover will only last for about seven years. These covers can’t withstand acid rain or wear and tear from the weather, but stainless steel covers are designed to do just that. Galvanized chase covers are also a problem because they allow water to leak and trigger unseen damage, not to mention rust stains streaking down the sides of your home.
Our Stainless Chimney Chase Covers
To prevent dealing with the issues associated with a galvanized chase cover, choose one of our custom-designed stainless steel chimney chase covers. Why choose stainless steel over a traditional chase cover? Stainless steel chase covers will:
- Never rust or become unsightly.
- Help ensure continued structural integrity of your chimney chase.
- Provide superior protection against unwanted guests (animals, debris, and weather).
- Prevent unnecessary moisture, which helps to stop mold growth and leaks.
Finally, the last thing to consider when buying your chase cover is how you want it to look. After you have decided on the type, it may be possible to choose a specific color or finish so it matches your home. It is smarter and more cost-effective to buy a quality piece now. When purchased wisely and installed correctly, a chimney chase cover will last for a very long time.
