CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR BRENTWOOD

What Harm Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

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 neglected spots when it comes to the adequate maintenance of a property. 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 damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other issues. 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 beyond your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from damaging into your home’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from penetrating your home. When installed precisely, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Checking Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be obvious to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to repair. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to inspect your dwelling’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Replacing 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. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps avert water problems 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 excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is missing
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the 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 is leaking water into your residence.

Chimney cap repairs for your house should last about 20 years in Brentwood’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next thing that our technicians would watch for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

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

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