Chimney Cap Harms

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 component that we 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 inspected for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be resealed. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep your residence’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly replaces 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 leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp places are ideal for growing and harboring adverse mold. Because leakage occurrs 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 test your roof and chimney soon.
