CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR GLEN HEAD

What Harm Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps cushion the area 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. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to stall your Glen Head structure from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and securing your Glen Head residence from water aggression.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to avert rain water and melting snow from aggressive your dwelling. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to cushion your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Analyzing For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure and check for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see sickening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Closed?

A variety of elements can weaken your chimney cap and initiate the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Imprecisely-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your Glen Head roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap seems to be broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Chimney cap repairs for your property should last about 20 years in Glen Head’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Recognizing Destruction Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next component that our chimney experts would assess the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can guardedly pass by the chimney cap.

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

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp spots are perfect for growing and harboring toxic mold. Mold is known to be toxic to humans and pets – and – if water is penetrating down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to repair. We suggest you call Expressway to test your roof and chimney soon.
