CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR HAUPPAUGE

What Problems Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

Chimney caps defend the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten spots when it comes to the adequate upkeep of a dwelling. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to forestall your Hauppauge residence from water leakage. 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. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your Hauppauge structure 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 secure the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.
