As a homeowner, you want to make sure that your house and family are well protected. Most often, we think of security systems and locks to keep intruders away. But have you thought about the dangers that lurk in your chimney? Animals, rain, snow, and debris can all find their way into your chimney causing costly damage. However, with a chimney chase cover from G.H. Erickson & Son, you can avoid these potential dangers and provide added protection to your home.
The Benefits of a chimney chase cover
Chimney chase covers offers multiple benefits that make them a worthwhile investment for any homeowner to install. The primary function of a chimney chase cover is to keep animals, birds, moisture, and debris out of your chimney. Additionally, it prevents rain and snow from entering your chimney, which can cause extensive damage to your chimney liner, fireplace, fire box, and result in costly repairs.

Chimney chase covers also have built in drip edges that helps protect masonry chimneys.
