Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next part that we would assess the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be inspected for cracks, problems or breaks at least once a month.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of your residence’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be resealed. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep your structure’s roof protected. Chimney problems most commonly begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp places are optimal for growing and harboring toxic mold. Because breakage 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 analyze your roof and chimney soon.
