CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR CORAM

What Problems Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps defend the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. 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 Coram home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your Coram dwelling from water damage. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe harm to your Coram property 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 the chimney. If water seems to be allowed to intrude into the property 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 inspections to preserve the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water intrusion.

Analyzing Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney appears functional after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be evident to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking complication. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the breakage and reseal it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of stoxic mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

A variety of elements can damage 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. Imprecisely-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the Coram roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps impede water damages from occurring 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 the chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Coram residence 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.

Spotting Broken Chimney Caps

Many of the residence’s chimneys in Coram are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next element that our pros would assess the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be inspected for cracks, danger or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm most commonly begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Dwelling materials can simply develop breakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be really harmed by regular water intrusion. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets – and – if water is infiltrating down into your residence, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to address. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
