CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR GREENLAWN

What Is The Importance Of Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Greenlawn home’s first line of defense against water harm. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a residence’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Greenlawn property from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets beyond your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from aggressive into the structure’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. If water is allowed to intrude into your structure through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Cap Damage To Watch For

Even if your chimney looks dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your residence’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Greenlawn) 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 trouble are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on the Greenlawn roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is problematic, 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 the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is damaged
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap is coming loose
  • the 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 structure.

Whether your Greenlawn structure 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 Breakages

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. The next thing that our pros would inspect for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in protecting a home from penetrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be adverse to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
