CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR BABYLON

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps defend the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to the adequate conservation of a structure. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Babylon home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof vulnerable to leaks. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and preserving your Babylon property from water intrusion.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. If water seems to be allowed to flow down into your home through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to defend your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Analyzing For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see toxic mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of things can rot the chimney cap and cause the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Rust damage are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps avert water damage from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is missing
  • When the chimney cap seems to be rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • Your chimney cap seems to be covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • Your chimney is leaking water into your residence.

Whether your Babylon property has a fireplace that was built with masonry stone or brick – you’ll have to maintain the chimney cap so that it won’t leak.

Spotting Problematic Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. The next component that our pros would evaluate the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be tested for cracks, defects or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak beyond the chimney cap. Chimney inspection appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage frequently begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Residence products can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp places are optimal for growing and harboring risky mold. Mold is known to be toxic to humans and pets – and – if water is damaging down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
