CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR INWOOD

What Is The Importance Of Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps secure the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most essential parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Inwood home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your Inwood structure from water leakage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof sensitive to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your Inwood structure and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stall rain water and melting snow from aggressive your residence. If water is allowed to penetrate into the 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 assessments to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Looking For Chimney Cap Damage

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

Renovating Your Own Chimney Cap

Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Rust harms are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps prevent water damages from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system.

Recognizing Damage Below The Surface

Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a dwelling from damaging water.

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 places are perfect for growing and harboring mold.
