What Is A Chimney Chase Top?
If you have a prefab fireplace with manufactured gas burning logs, the “chase” is the artificial chimney that sticks out of your roof. The chase top is what sits on top of it. It’s important to have a chase and chase top that are in good working order because these components are what keep water out of your chimney and out of your home.
How do I know if I need a new chase top?
If you see rust on your chase cover, chase, or roof, there’s a good chance that water is getting inside your chase, which in turn may be causing damage to your chimney, heating appliance and even your drywall. For that reason we tell our customers that the No. 1 sign that your chase top needs replacing is when there are rust stains. Rust on the outside of your chimney usually means there’s rust on the inside of your chimney, too.
