CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR CEDARHURST

Some Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is usually your Cedarhurst home’s first line of defense against water harm. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to the adequate sustainment of a residence. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Cedarhurst home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your Cedarhurst home from water leakage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof sensitive to leaks. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water damage.

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 is allowed to enter into the dwelling through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to defend the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Assessing For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be visible to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking damage. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Obstructed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Cedarhurst) 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 harms are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on your home’s Cedarhurst roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always 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 missing
  • When the chimney cap is 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 is leaking water into your structure.

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

Chimney Cap Breakages

Many of the home’s chimneys in Cedarhurst are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be replaced 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 tested for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

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 residence’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a property from infiltrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
