CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR COVE NECK

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps preserve the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. 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 problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other issues. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof open to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy harm to your Cove Neck home 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 exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

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

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Closed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Cove Neck) 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 leaks are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap looks harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left forgetten about. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next thing that we would watch the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be tested for cracks, defects or breaks at least once a month.

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

Dwelling products can simply develop leakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be heavily harmed by regular water insertion. Because leakage begins 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 evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
