CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR GARDEN CITY

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps defend the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most essential parts of a structure’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Garden City home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof sensitive to leaks. If water gets below your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from penetrating into the residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow from penetrating your property. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to preserve your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water aggression.

Watching For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling 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 us immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see detrimental mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice harmful mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an professional chimney cap company such as Expressway to check your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Garden City) 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. Rust problems are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on the Garden City roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap looks broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left omitted. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is broken
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • Your 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 residence.

Whether your Garden City 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.

Chimney Cap Problems

Many of the home’s chimneys in Garden City are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next element that our pros would look the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be scrutinized for cracks, danger or breaks at least once a month.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be replaced. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep your home’s roof cushioned. Chimney harm most commonly 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. Mold growth – which is most commonly in dark, undrafted and damp places are ideal for growing and harboring threatening mold. Because harm occurrs below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
