CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR BALDWIN

What Harm Does A Chimney Cap Repair Fix?

A chimney cap repair is typically your Baldwin property’s first line of protection against water leakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten sections when it comes to the adequate preservation of a structure. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other weakening. Chimney cap repairs are usually made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe harm to your Baldwin structure and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water is allowed to enter into your structure through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Cap Issues To Look For

Even if your chimney appears functional after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of sdetrimental mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to repair. If you notice dangerous mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, reach an highly-skilled chimney cap company such as Expressway to maintain your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Alarming?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Baldwin) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Improperly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your Baldwin roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause leaks to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps avert water damages from happening to your 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 your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Baldwin home 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.

Recognizing Destruction Below The Surface

Many of the property’s chimneys in Baldwin are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be resealed by cutting out the old metal chimney cap with an angle grinder and replacing it with a new chimney cap. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be analyzed for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the dwelling’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a dwelling from penetrating water.

Property pieces can simply develop leakage over time. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp spots are best for growing and harboring adverse mold. Because leakage occurrs below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
