CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR BRENTWOOD

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Brentwood structure’s first line of defense against water leakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten sections when it comes to the adequate conservation of a residence. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other weakening. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets past your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from penetrating into the property’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow from damaging your house. If water seems to be allowed to penetrate into your home through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Looking Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and analyze for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the harm and reseal it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sunhealthy mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Repairing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Brentwood) 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. Rust leaks are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps forestall water problems from happening to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Brentwood dwelling 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.

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Brentwood 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 freely pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak beyond 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 spots in question and help to keep the home’s roof preserved. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a dwelling from aggressive water.

Property materials can simply develop harm over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp areas are best for growing and harboring dangerous mold. Because breakage begins below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
