CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR FISHERS ISLAND

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 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. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to stall your Fishers Island home from water damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy harm to your Fishers Island home 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 your chimney. If water appears allowed to get in into your structure through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Looking Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be visible to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our professional chimney techs will find the source of the damage and reseal it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of srisky 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 leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Obstructed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Fishers Island) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney cap material. Incorrectly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has rusted from the elements will eventually cause damage to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps forestall water harm from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Recognizing An Issue Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. The next factor that we would analyze the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can effortlessly pass by the chimney cap.

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

Residence products can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp places are excellent for growing and harboring harmful mold. Because harm occurrs below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
