CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR EAST SHOREHAM

Some Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps secure the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most essential parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. 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 problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof sensitive to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe harm to your East Shoreham structure and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stall rain water and melting snow from leaking your residence. If water is allowed to penetrate into your home through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Looking Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an highly-skilled chimney cap company such as Expressway to inspect your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Blocked?

A variety of things can harm your chimney cap and start the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the chimney cap material. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a East Shoreham roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps stop water problems from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is broken
  • When the chimney cap is 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
  • the chimney is leaking water into your dwelling.

Whether your East Shoreham residence 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.

Recognizing Damage Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. The next component that our pros would inspect for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be renovated 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 below the chimney cap. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a structure from eroding water.

Structural items can simply develop problems over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building products can be severely harmed by regular water seepage. Because breakage happens 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 inspect your roof and chimney soon.
