CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR FISHERS ISLAND

Some Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is usually your Fishers Island dwelling’s first line of defense against water leakage. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a home’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other weakening. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe problems to your Fishers Island property 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 is allowed to enter into your residence through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap is broken, it can quickly become a major harm if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is dislodge
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the 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
  • Your chimney is leaking water into your dwelling.

Whether your Fishers Island 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 home’s chimneys in Fishers Island are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next component that we would analyze for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection is 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.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water infiltration. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
