Quick Chase Overview

What Is a Quick Chase?

Got an ugly metal chimney pipe jutting out of your roofline that you’d like to give the look of a masonry chimney or that you’d like to clad in siding? Or do you have a rotted-out chase system that needs replacing, or a chimney chase that is in need of a major overall? We have a solution for you.

There are advantages for homeowners who choose a prefabricated chimney. However, the metal chimney on top of your house likely isn't one. Meet our Quick Chase solution.

Our company serves a lot of purposes and provides many different outdoor products for our customers, but one of the things we’re most proud of at IBD Outdoor Rooms is how we’ve pioneered what we call the “quick chase.”

As manufactured chimneys and fireplaces began to increase in popularity, we recognized the need for this product, which is designed to cover up an unsightly metal chimney, also known as a “prefabricated” or “manufactured” chimney. Our custom-built quick chases give the look of a masonry or other built-in chimney, but without all the construction cost and headache associated with building, maintaining—and supporting the weight of—a real masonry chimney.

Our quick chase even has the durability of a masonry chimney; the system carries a limited lifetime warranty.

How the Quick Chase System Works

Depending on your preference and budget, you can order a quick chase made of either 22-gauge galvanized steel or 22-gauge stainless steel framing members that are then covered with half-inch concrete board.

Stainless steel chimney flashing is built into the chase and attached to the framing members, inserted behind the concrete board. Our quick chase system can either be custom configured by your installer or purchased with a two-part system that includes a pitch adaptor to work with most common roof pitches.

Following installation of the system by a qualified professional, your quick chase can be finished with veneer stone, veneer brick, stucco, siding, or any other weatherproof material that you’d like. In addition to the quick chase system, we can also ship you a high-quality chase cover designed to fit your chase and keep rain, debris, and animals out of your chimney, extending its life.
