Recognizing Weakening Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. Most of the time, this can be resealed 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 analyzed for cracks, danger or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney problems generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is most commonly in dark, undrafted and damp sections are best for growing and harboring toxic mold. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is aggressive down into your residence, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
