CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR EAST NORWICH

Some Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is frequently your East Norwich property’s first line of integrity against water leakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate preservation of a structure. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof prone to leaks. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and protecting your East Norwich home from water aggression.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to forestall rain water and melting snow from eroding your dwelling. If water is allowed to flow down into your dwelling through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water penetration.

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure and analyze for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without replace for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of sthreatening 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?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Norwich) 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. Inexactly-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 seems to be problematic, it can quickly become a major leak if left ignored. 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 efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your East Norwich home 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 Harmed Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next element that our technicians would assess the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be repaired Missing mortar joints also need to be corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can easily pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a property from eroding water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be heavily harmed by regular water insertion. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your residence, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to fix. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
