CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR GLEN COVE

What Damage Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps protect the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to the adequate upkeep of a property. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Glen Cove home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your Glen Cove property from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe leakage to your Glen Cove property and parts of the chimney.

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

Looking Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure and maintain 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 highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without replace for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sharmful mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. If you notice noxious mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an professional chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to inspect your residence’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Obstructed?

A variety of conditions can break your chimney cap and start the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Rust harms are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on your home’s Glen Cove roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rusted from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps prevent water leakage from happening to the 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 the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is missing
  • When the chimney cap looks rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • the chimney cap seems to be 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 home.

Whether your Glen Cove 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 Harm Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts 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, danger or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep your residence’s roof defended. Chimney harm most commonly begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Home products can simply develop leakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be really broken by regular water infiltration. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
