Chimney Rain Pan and Shroud Installation Process
A chimney rain pan, also called a chimney chase cover, is installed at the base of the chimney to divert water runoff. Our custom-fabricated chimney rain pans, made from durable metals, wrap around the chimney and prevent moisture from seeping into vulnerable areas.
Then, a decorative chimney shroud is mounted above the rain pan to conceal the unsightly flue pipe and termination cap. A chimney shroud in different architectural styles adds sophistication while protecting your chimney’s interior.
Benefits of a Chimney Pan & Chimney Shroud
- Prevents water damage from chimney leaks.
- Keeps flue gases venting properly for safety.
- Stop debris buildup that leads to blockages.
- Adds a unique style that enhances your home’s curb appeal.

Chimney Pan & Shroud Replacement
Chimney pan and chimney shroud replacements are crucial for safeguarding your home against water damage, maintaining structural integrity, enhancing aesthetics, ensuring insurance coverage, and promoting long-term cost savings. It is a proactive step towards preserving the beauty and functionality of your chimney, contributing to the overall well-being of your home.
Signs Your Chimney Pan & Shroud Need Replacement
Rust and Corrosion: Inspect the chimney shroud and pan for visible signs of rust or corrosion. Rust weakens the metal over time, compromising its ability to protect the chimney. If you notice extensive rusting, it’s a clear indicator that replacement is necessary.
Water Stains: Inside your home, check for water stains on the walls or ceiling near the chimney. If water is penetrating through a compromised shroud or pan, it can lead to staining. Addressing water stains promptly is crucial to prevent further damage.
Leakage or Drips: During or after rain, observe the chimney area for any signs of water leakage or drips. If you notice water coming down the sides of the chimney or pooling on the pan, it indicates a potential issue with the shroud and pan’s water-repelling capabilities.
Chimney Odors: A damaged or deteriorating chimney chase cover and chimney shroud can allow water to seep into the chimney structure, leading to mold and mildew growth. If you detect musty odors near the chimney, it could be a sign of water infiltration and a need for replacement.
Age of Components: Consider the age of your chimney shroud and pan. Over time, these components naturally wear out, and their effectiveness diminishes. If they are approaching or have exceeded their average lifespan, it’s prudent to plan for replacement before issues arise.
Visible Wear and Tear: Conduct a visual inspection for any general wear and tear. Cracks, holes, or peeling coatings are indications that the chimney pan & shroud may no longer provide adequate protection. Addressing these signs promptly can prevent further deterioration.
Increased Energy Bills: Damaged chimney components can compromise the energy efficiency of your home. If you notice a sudden increase in heating or cooling bills, it could be attributed to a compromised chimney system. Replacement can help restore efficiency.
