CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR HERRICKS

Some Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is usually your Herricks dwelling’s first line of defense against water harm. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to the adequate sustainment of a structure. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Herricks home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to forestall your Herricks dwelling from water damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof susceptible to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your Herricks 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 the chimney. If water is allowed to get in into the residence through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Watching For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be obvious to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Worrisome?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Herricks) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a Herricks roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to your 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 correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is damaged
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap is coming loose
  • Your 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 residence.

Whether your Herricks 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.

Recognizing Damage Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our technicians 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be renovated and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak underneath the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep the home’s roof cushioned. Chimney problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because breakage happens below the roof and out of sight, customers 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.
