Prefabricated Chimney Chase Pan Repair
Standing water on your Chase Pan cover often leads to needing an expensive full replacement and unsightly rust staining.
A Chase Pan is like a shallow cookie pan installed upside down over the top of your chimney. It’s sole purpose is to keep damaging rain water from entering your hollow wooden chimney chase and damaging your home. Simply put, the Chase Pan is your chimney’s roof!
Just like your home’s roof, a properly installed Chase Pan Cover should have a downward slope to encourage rainwater be shed quickly.
Sometimes, a chase pan can’t shed water properly because it was installed or dented in such a manner that the chase pan allows water to collect and pool rather than run off as it should.
If your chase pan is allowing water to “pond” or “puddle” on top of your chimney, it needs to be fixed. If this problem is ignored, stagnant water will cause your chase pan to rust, and eventually require a complete replacement…an expense that is completely avoidable! In addition to unsightly rust stains streaming down the sides of your chimney, a chase pan that rusts through will allow damaging rainwater to leak into your home which might cause extensive damage to your walls, ceilings, and floors, not to mention potential mold issues!
An ounce of prevention is far cheaper than a pound of cure. Let A to Z fix your chase pan cover so it can do the job it was designed to do!
If necessary, we can replace a badly damaged chase pan and do the job right. We have years of experience to call on when making repairs to your prefab chimney.

Dear A to Z,
We wanted to thank you and tell you that we were impressed by your employees and the work you did at Sunnyside Steakhouse & Lodge (Tahoe City, CA).
To reline our 50+ year old chimney, rebuild the firebox, install a fan on the top of our huge chimney, and refurbish our ornamental chimney cap was a big job.
You and your crew did it professionally, timely, and you were very clean. What we are excited about most is that we (and our guests!!) are enjoying a fire on a night when it would have been virtually impossible to do so because of the wind direction! No more chimney smoke spilling into our lodge! What you’ve done for us is fantastic. Thanks for taking this job even though it was out of your area.
~ Jeff Oxandaboure, General Manager & Janet Gregor, Lodge Manager
