If you have a prefabricated chimney, you know that it consists of metal pipes. Many people do not like the looks of the metal pipe coming through the roof and have a chase designed and constructed to cover the pipe so that it looks like a regular chimney. Our designers at IBD Outdoor Rooms came up with the idea of a quick chase that can be easily constructed to quickly build a chase for prefabricated chimneys. Our quick chase fills the need for not only the new construction of a prefabricated chimney, but it can also be used as part of a retrofit application of an appliance and as a replacement for a damaged and rotted old chase.

How does the construction of this quick chase work?

Our quick chase product is available in a couple of different configurations. We have a custom configuration which depends on the installer’s measurements of the pitch of the roof, the outside dimensions and the height of the quick chase, and the projection and size of the top band that we will build into the quick chase. We also have a two-part system of quick chases that comes with a pitch adapter, which allows the easy adjustment for common pitches.

How is the quick chase constructed?

Our quick chases are constructed with concrete boards that are adaptable for veneer stone, veneer brick, or stucco to bond directly to the board. Our staff at IBD Outdoor Rooms can help you select the facing that will work best for your home. All of our quick chases are built with stainless steel flashing that is attached to the framing members and inserted behind the exterior concrete boards. This flashing will protect your quick chase from water penetration that can cause damage and deterioration.

Do you also make chase covers?

Yes, IBD Outdoor Rooms will manufacture and ship a chase cover with your quick chase unit. We make chase covers from hot dip or paint grip galvanized metal, stainless steel, and copper. Your chase cover will be custom made to perfectly fit your quick chase to protect it from the elements of weather.
