CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR JOHN BOYLE ISLAND

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps protect the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a structure’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their John Boyle Island 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 begins a host of other weakening. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof vulnerable to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy problems to your John Boyle Island residence and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from infiltrating your structure. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water aggression.

Evaluating For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure and analyze 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 residence that start to leak, call us immediately.

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in John Boyle Island) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney cap material. Rust harms are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on your John Boyle Island roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps forestall water damages from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Spotting Harmed Chimney Caps

Many of the property’s chimneys in John Boyle Island 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 investigated for cracks, problems or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp areas are perfect for growing and harboring toxic mold. Because leakage occurrs 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 check your roof and chimney soon.
