Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Island Park are over 50 years old (or more) and failing.

Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the property’s roof preserved.
