CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR HOSPITAL ISLAND

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps defend the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Hospital Island home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other problems. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and protecting your Hospital Island structure from water damage.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water seems to be allowed to flow down into the residence through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Cap Trouble To Check For

Even if your chimney seems to be dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of srisky mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to remedy. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Hospital Island) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Inexactly-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 broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left omitted. 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 fine 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
  • Your chimney cap appears covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • the chimney looks leaking water into your residence.

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

Spotting Problematic Chimney Caps

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 repaired 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 inspected for cracks, defects or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak below the chimney cap. Chimney inspection appears 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 protecting a structure from infiltrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be heavily harmed by regular water seepage. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets – and – if water is damaging down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to repair. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
