Rain pans are located at the top of a prefab fireplace to prevent water from entering the chimney chase and firebox.
Rain pans are typically made out of metal/galvanized steel. They serve as the roof for your chimney chase. We receive many calls from customers who tell us they are getting water leaks in their fireplace. Most of the time, we find that the rain pan has rusted out or has a hole in it.
Sometimes, a rain pain can be repaired. Other times, a new rain pan is needed and to prevent future water damage. Advanced Chimney Sweeps offers complete services for rain pains including repair and installation of new rain pans.
