What Damage Does A Chimney Cap Repair Fix?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Kensington home’s first line of integrity against water damage. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to the adequate conservation of a property. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof vulnerable to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy damage to your Kensington home and parts of the chimney.

Recognizing Trouble Below The Surface

Many of the property’s chimneys in Kensington 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be addressed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the property’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be addressed. Chimney inspection seems to be 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.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be heavily damaged by regular water seepage. Because breakage begins below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
