CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR EAST SHOREHAM

Some Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps preserve 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 upkeep 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 avert your East Shoreham dwelling from water leakage. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets under the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from leaking into the property’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stop rain water and melting snow from aggressive your property. When installed correctly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Closed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Shoreham) 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 problems are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on your East Shoreham roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is damaged, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is missing
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the 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 is leaking water into your structure.

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

Spotting Broken 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 component that we would inspect for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be addressed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. If your 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 the home’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in protecting a dwelling from eroding water.

Structural pieces can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely harmed by regular water intrusion. Mold is known to be toxic to humans and pets – and – if water is aggressive down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to reseal. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
