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!

A to Z did a great job sweeping our chimney! After they cleaned the flue, they put a small camera up the chimney to make sure it was sound. He had me look at the computer screen to show me what he was looking at and he was able to show me that our chimney was in great shape (after the cleaning, of course).
The whole process was seamless and easy for me and the technician was very professional throughout.
