Rotted wooden cover for a metal fireplace stack

Texas, United States   

I need to repair a couple of rotted boards where wooden chimney cover comes out the roof. 

I can’t see the area from the ground but several small pieces came off the roof during recent rains.

There is no sign of leaking around the flashing.

What should I do?

Contact a member of the Texas Chimney Sweep at and have them come out and do a full assessment.
This CHASE requires immediate attention so as to NOT have any weather or birds/animals enter .
Once the new chase has been either installed or the old one repaired, ensure a proper sloped chase pan top is installed to facilitate water run off.
look into the photo section of this Site and I will post a pic of a CHASE COVER
