CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR FREEPORT

What Issues Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps cushion the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your Freeport residence from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof vulnerable to leaks. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and securing your Freeport property from water penetration.

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 is allowed to intrude into your home through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Problems To Inspect For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and inspect for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Freeport) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your home’s Freeport roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is broken, it can quickly become a major problem if left unaddressed. 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 excellent working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is harmed
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your 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
  • the chimney is leaking water into your structure.

Whether your Freeport home 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 chimneys that our pros 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be studied for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a property from eroding water.

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