CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR ELWOOD

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps defend the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Elwood home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other weakening. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof open to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe problems to your Elwood residence and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years.

If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately.

Addressing Your Own Chimney Cap

Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be scrutinized for cracks, defects or breaks at least once a month.
