Pre fabricated chimneys have been available since the 1980s and are typically used with pre fabricated fireplace systems. When it comes time to select fireplace systems for their remodeled or newly constructed homes, homeowners should be aware of the pros and cons of pre fabricated chimneys.
The pros and cons of owning a pre-fabricated chimney. The pre fabricated type of chimney is less prone to leakage than is a masonry chimney. However, if it is not properly maintained, the sealant around the storm collars or chimney lining pipes can deteriorate and cause leaks.
A leak can also result if the chimney chase cover is damaged. Therefore, annual chimney inspection is recommended to ensure that the system is in peak operating condition.

Prefab chimneys are made with less joints and less seams. Therefore, they are less likely to have smoke or exhaust leak into your home.

Also, having less joints means that a prefab chimney naturally has less places that could be weak and leaky.
