CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR HOLTSVILLE

What Problems Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

A chimney cap repair is generally your Holtsville home’s first line of defense against water damage. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked places when it comes to the adequate preservation of a dwelling. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Holtsville home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Holtsville structure 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 your roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and securing your Holtsville structure from water penetration.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to avert rain water and melting snow from eroding your dwelling. If water is allowed to penetrate into your property through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Cap Harm To Inspect For

Following a storm, walk around your home and evaluate for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking damage. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the harm and replace it ASAP. On your residence’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Replacing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of factors can dislodge your chimney cap and begin the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Incorrectly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s cap is damaged, it can quickly become a major leak if left slighted. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Chimney cap repairs for your house should last about 20 years in Holtsville’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Chimney Cap Damage

Many of the chimneys that our pros 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be scrutinized for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak below 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 spots in question and help to keep your dwelling’s roof protected. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in cushioning a home from penetrating water.

Residence products can simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp places are excellent for growing and harboring noxious mold. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to fix. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
