CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR ELMONT

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps preserve the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a residence’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your Elmont property from water damage. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water infiltration.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water is allowed to intrude into your structure through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water aggression.

Assessing For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be visible to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the harm and replace it ASAP. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see risky mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating 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 Elmont) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Rust damage are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Workers on a Elmont roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps hamper water problems from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Spotting Problematic Chimney Caps

Many of the residence’s chimneys in Elmont are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next factor that our technicians would analyze 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 guardedly pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Residence items can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are good for growing and harboring noxious mold. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets – and – if water is penetrating down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to fix. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
