What Is the Role of a Chimney Crown?
Are you unsure of what your chimney crown or chase cover does? Or what they even are? Don’t worry – you’re not alone. That said, the more you know about your chimney, the more likely you are to keep it in tip-top shape. So, let’s get to learning to better understand why these parts are so important for residents of Chevy Chase and its neighboring communities.
A chimney crown is a large slab of concrete that covers the top opening of the chimney on a masonry structure. It helps to protect the brick and mortar chimney structure from water, and it needs to be built correctly, regularly maintained, repaired as necessary, and waterproofed to stand the test of time.
The good news is, we can help with all of that.
What Is a Chase Cover & What Does It Do?
A chase cover is used for a prefab or factory-built fireplace. Prefab fireplaces are the ones you usually see in hearth retail stores. A chase cover fits over the top of the chimney, which is usually sided with a vinyl, metal, or wood.
A chase cover protects your chimney from snow, rain, debris, and animals. If you check the local weather on the daily, you’ll see that in the wintertime we are prone to snow and freezing rain, and that we’re no stranger to rain storms in the spring. Which is why this piece is essential for keeping your system safer.
Usually, the stock chase covers that come with your prefab fireplace won’t stand the test of time, especially after facing the elements of Mother Nature – that’s where we come in. We can get a sturdy and reliable one installed for you right away.
