CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR HEMPSTEAD

Some Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps protect the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other issues. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof sensitive to leaks. If water gets below the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding into the property’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 penetrate into your residence through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to preserve the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Assessing 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. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking complication. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your home’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an professional chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to inspect your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Blocked?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Hempstead) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Rust weakening are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps forestall water damages from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is dislodge
  • 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
  • the chimney is leaking water into your structure.

Whether your Hempstead 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 Problems

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally 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, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep your dwelling’s roof defended. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a dwelling from infiltrating water.

Dwelling pieces can simply develop breakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely broken by regular water insertion. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
