CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR ISLIP

What Is The Importance Of Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Islip residence’s first line of defense against water leakage. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Islip home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other weakening. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof open to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe harm to your Islip home and parts of the chimney.

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 is allowed to flow down into your residence through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Assessing For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure and inspect for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the damage and fix it ASAP. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an highly-skilled chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to inspect your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Repairing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of things can harm the chimney cap and begin 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. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your home’s Islip roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps prevent water damage from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Recognizing Damage Below The Surface

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Islip are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. 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, defects or breaks at least once a month.

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be resealed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

House items can simply develop harm over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
