CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR BELLEROSE

Some Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps preserve the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Bellerose 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 causes a host of other weakening. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof prone to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe harm to your Bellerose dwelling 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 looks allowed to intrude into your property 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 cushion your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Issues To Watch For

Even if your chimney appears okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be visible 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. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the leak and fix it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Clogged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Bellerose) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the chimney cap material. Rust damage are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap looks leaky, it can quickly become a major harm if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Bellerose 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 Weakening Below The Surface

Many of the home’s chimneys in Bellerose 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can easily pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep the structure’s roof protected. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a home from eroding water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be really damaged by regular water intrusion. Because leakage begins below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
