CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR EAST HAMPTON

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps defend the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected sections when it comes to the adequate preservation of a dwelling. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your East Hampton property from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are frequently made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and preserving your East Hampton home from water penetration.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from eroding your residence. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Cap Trouble To Look For

Even if your chimney appears okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be evident to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without repair for very long. On your residence’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Worrisome?

A variety of conditions can weaken the chimney cap and begin 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. Incorrectly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap appears leaky, it can quickly become a major problem if left slighted. With so much to gain from having properly 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 the chimney cap is broken
  • When the chimney cap seems to be rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap is coming loose
  • Your chimney cap appears covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • the chimney looks leaking water into your structure.

Whether your East Hampton structure 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 Damaged Chimney Caps

Many of the home’s chimneys in East Hampton are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next part that our chimney experts would evaluate the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be checked for cracks, problems 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 appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a home from damaging water.

House products can simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp sections are best for growing and harboring noxious mold. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to fix. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
