CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR EAST HILLS

What Harm Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

Chimney caps preserve the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked places 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 bad with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to stall your East Hills structure from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are usually made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets beyond the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from infiltrating into the property’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

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 get in into your structure through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water penetration.

Looking Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking damage. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of sdetrimental mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Replacing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Hills) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Imprecisely-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 rusted from the elements will eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps hamper water harm from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is harmed
  • When the chimney cap seems to be rusted or rotted through
  • If your 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
  • Your chimney seems to be leaking water into your dwelling.

Whether your East Hills dwelling 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 Leaky Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. The next thing that our chimney experts would inspect the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be repaired Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass by the chimney cap.

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 fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a residence from penetrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp areas are best for growing and harboring noxious mold. Because breakage occurrs below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
