CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR FARMINGDALE

What Problems Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

Chimney caps cushion the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected places when it comes to the adequate prolongation of a structure. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Farmingdale home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your Farmingdale dwelling from water leakage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof sensitive to leaks. If water gets under the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from aggressive into the residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from infiltrating your residence. If water is allowed to flow down into your dwelling through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Issues To Watch For

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 evident to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sunhealthy mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Damaged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Farmingdale) 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. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps stop water damage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. Most of the time, this can be repaired by cutting out the old metal chimney cap with an angle grinder and replacing it with a new chimney cap. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be investigated for cracks, leaks or breaks at least once a month.

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be repaired. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep the structure’s roof preserved. Chimney problems typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are optimal for growing and harboring sickening mold. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets – and – if water is damaging down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to address. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
