CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR FRANKLIN SQUARE

A Few Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is most commonly your Franklin Square dwelling’s first line of integrity against water breakage. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a dwelling’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 initiates a host of other leaks. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof prone to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy damage to your Franklin Square dwelling 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. If water appears allowed to flow down into your structure through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Watching Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and check for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice unhealthy mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an expert chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to test your residence’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Alarming?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Franklin Square) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Improperly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your Franklin Square roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rusted from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps forestall water problems from happening to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Franklin Square structure 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.

Chimney Cap Damage

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. Most of the time, this can be resealed by cutting out the old metal chimney cap with an angle grinder and replacing it with a new chimney cap. Missing mortar joints also need to be addressed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be repaired. If the 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 your residence’s roof cushioned. Chimney damage typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

House materials can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be severely broken by regular water intrusion. Because leakage begins below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
