CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR ISLIP TERRACE

A Few Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps secure the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to the adequate maintenance of a residence. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Islip Terrace home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Islip Terrace property from water leakage. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets underneath the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from leaking into the residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stop rain water and melting snow from eroding your house. When installed correctly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water penetration.

Chimney Cap Damage To Evaluate For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and evaluate for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. On your home’s roof, do you see noxious mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

A variety of things can rot your chimney cap and initiate the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace the chimney cap material. Improperly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your Islip Terrace roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause leaks to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps hamper water harm from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Spotting Problematic Chimney Caps

Many of the property’s chimneys in Islip Terrace are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. 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 investigated for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep your property’s roof cushioned. Chimney leakage frequently begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Residence products can simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp areas are best for growing and harboring adverse mold. Because damage begins below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
