We used to recommend
stainless steel because its a more durable material for use
in outdoors environment. The metal is stronger and over a long
period looks like new. As you know with your kitchen sink stainless
will not rust.
However we now recommend another product that we think is a
good alternervinve to Stainless Steel in light of the recent
price increase for Stainless Steel.. The product is called
"Color-Clad" has a 25yr product warranty
and come in a number of differnet colors. The most basic are
Black, White, Sand, Bronze, Red, Green etc.. we can get close
to most trim colors or most times it better to be diffenent
and not try to match the color..
Color Clad product is the material used for metal roof's, its
prefinished with a the color you choose and made to order and
is a very durable finish.
Give us a call today, we
will come by, take a look at the chimney, and give you a price
on replacing the old rusted top with a new stainless steel
model. We can also give you a price on regular galvanized
and paint grip coating if you want a cheap fix. This material
has no warranty.
Chase cover replacements start
at around $425.00 for galvanized, $495.00 for color
clad and $615.00 for stainless steel. Actual pricing depends
on size and material requested and height of chimney. Most customer
opt for Color Clad and every so often we get to make a copper
Prices for copper is highest, with stainless next,
then "Color- Clad" a good buy, and galvanized lowest
cost, lower quality metal.
Stainless Steel and Copper chase covers have a lifetime warranty
against rust, corrosion and defects.
"Color-Clad" chase covers carry a 25yr warrenty against
rust. ( we recommend this one most often.)
