CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR HERRICKS

Some Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps preserve the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a home’s healthy chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Herricks home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your Herricks property from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly 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 leakage to your Herricks home and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow from eroding your structure. When installed precisely, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Chimney Cap Harm To Check For

Following a storm, walk around your structure and analyze for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without replace for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of ssickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to remedy. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Correcting Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of parts can break your chimney cap and begin the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Inexactly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the Herricks roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps forestall water damage from happening to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Herricks 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.

Recognizing Problems Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. Most of the time, this can be replaced 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 addressed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can readily pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in cushioning a property from aggressive water.

Property materials can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building products can be really deteriorated by regular water seepage. Because breakage begins below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
