CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR CENTERPORT

What Problems Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Centerport property’s first line of defense against water leakage. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a structure’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Centerport home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your Centerport home from water problems. 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. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your Centerport 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. When installed properly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. 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 infiltration.

Watching For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks functional after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be obvious to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an highly-skilled chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to inspect your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Clogged?

A variety of elements can harm your chimney cap and start the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. 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 leaks 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 precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is harmed
  • When your 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
  • the chimney is leaking water into your home.

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

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the home’s chimneys in Centerport 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 analyzed for cracks, defects or breaks at least once a month.

Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the residence’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be repaired. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a home from eroding water.

Residence materials can simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets – and – if water is aggressive down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to address. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
