CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR GREENLAWN

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps cushion the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected areas when it comes to the adequate preservation of a structure. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your Greenlawn property from water damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and cushioning your Greenlawn dwelling from water penetration.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. When installed correctly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to preserve the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Checking Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and inspect for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without repair for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see toxic mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice threatening mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an professional chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to test your dwelling’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

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. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the chimney cap material. Rust problems are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Workers on a Greenlawn roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps forestall water harm from happening to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Issues

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next factor that we would analyze the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be renovated 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. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep the property’s roof protected. Chimney harm typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be seriously damaged by regular water seepage. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
