CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR GLENWOOD LANDING

A Few Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps cushion the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate maintenance of a home. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other weakening. Chimney cap repairs are frequently made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and preserving your Glenwood Landing home from water aggression.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from eroding your property.

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

  • Your chimney cap seems to be covered with roofing tar

Chimney Cap Problems

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. Most of the time, this can be replaced 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 inspected for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

House products can simply develop harm over time. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp spots are perfect for growing and harboring toxic mold. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
