CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR HAUPPAUGE

What Issues Does A Chimney Cap Repair Fix?

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 overlooked places when it comes to the adequate maintenance of a dwelling. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your Hauppauge home from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof prone to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe leakage to your Hauppauge residence and parts of the chimney.

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

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be obvious 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 repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of ssickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Hauppauge) 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. Improperly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap is damaged, it can quickly become a major problem if left forgetten about. 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 efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Hauppauge dwelling 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 Inspections

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Hauppauge are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next element that we would assess the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can guardedly pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your residence’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be addressed. Chimney inspection appears 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 property from damaging water.

Dwelling materials can simply develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be really broken by regular water invasion. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets – and – if water is aggressive down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
