CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR HUNTINGTON STATION

What Harm Does A Chimney Cap Repair Fix?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Huntington Station dwelling’s first line of defense against water harm. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked sections when it comes to the adequate maintenance of a residence. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Huntington Station home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to stall your Huntington Station home from water damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof open to leaks. If water gets past the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from penetrating into the structure’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 your chimney. If water seems to be allowed to flow down into your residence through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water infiltration.

Analyzing For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be functional after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see detrimental mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Addressing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of conditions can weaken your chimney cap and initiate 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. Rust problems are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps hamper water damage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Recognizing Trouble Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our technicians 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 fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can effortlessly pass by 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 your roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep the structure’s roof secured. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a residence from damaging water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be really broken by regular water invasion. Because leakage occurrs below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
