CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR LAKE GROVE

Some Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is usually your Lake Grove structure’s first line of defense against water leakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked sections when it comes to the adequate upkeep of a residence. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other issues. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe problems to your Lake Grove property 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 intrude into your structure through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Watching For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be evident to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the harm and repair it ASAP. On your residence’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Damaged?

A variety of factors can harm 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 move the chimney cap material. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your Lake Grove roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps stop water problems from occurring to the 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 good working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is broken
  • 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
  • Your chimney is leaking water into your structure.

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Caps

Many of the home’s chimneys in Lake Grove 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 repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the residence’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be repaired. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a dwelling from penetrating water.

Home pieces can simply develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water infiltration. Because harm happens 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.
