Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Coram home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your Coram structure 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. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and protecting your Coram dwelling from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to forestall rain water and melting snow from infiltrating your structure. If water is allowed to enter into the structure through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry.

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Coram) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney cap material. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your home’s Coram roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is missing
  • 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 structure should last about 20 years in Coram’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Chimney Cap Problems

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. The next element that our technicians would watch for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Missing mortar joints also need to be resealed 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 underneath 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.

Property materials can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because breakage happens below the roof and out of sight, clients 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.
