CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR GARDEN CITY SOUTH

What Problems Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

Chimney caps defend the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a residence’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Garden City South 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 begins a host of other weakening. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe harm to your Garden City South structure and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stop rain water and melting snow from aggressive your home. If water appears allowed to intrude into the home through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water penetration.

Chimney Cap Trouble 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 complication. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of snoxious mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to fix. If you notice sickening mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to analyze your dwelling’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Addressing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Garden City South) 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 the Garden City South roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause problems to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps stall water damages from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Chimney cap repairs for your property should last about 20 years in Garden City South’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 dwelling’s chimneys in Garden City South are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next factor that our chimney experts would assess the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Missing mortar joints also need to be addressed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak below the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep your property’s roof defended. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a dwelling from penetrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building products can be seriously damaged by regular water seepage. Because leakage occurrs below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
