At 850 Chimney Sweep, we pride ourselves on providing comprehensive chimney inspection and repair services to ensure the safety and functionality of your chimney system. During one of our recent inspections, we identified an early stage of rusting on the chase cover and an improperly installed cap storm collar. To address these issues and prevent rainwater from entering the system, we implemented an effective solution.
Our expert technicians replaced the old cap storm collar with a brand new one, ensuring a secure and proper fit. This replacement guarantees that rainwater is effectively redirected away from the chimney, preventing potential water damage and leaks.
In addition, we took a proactive approach to tackle the rusting issue on the chase cover. Recognizing the importance of a durable and weather-resistant cover, we custom-built a new chase cover using 26-gauge galvanized material. This choice of material provides excellent corrosion resistance and longevity.
To further enhance the functionality of the new chase cover, we incorporated 4-inch turndowns and 4 water redirecting cross breaks. These additions ensure that water is effectively channeled away from the chimney, reducing the risk of water infiltration and damage.
By investing in these solutions, we have effectively addressed the rusting issue and significantly improved the chimney’s ability to withstand the elements. Our commitment to quality craftsmanship and attention to detail guarantees that your chimney system will function optimally and stand the test of time.
