Chimney Cap Leaks

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be resealed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass by 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 resealed. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep your home’s roof defended. Chimney leakage generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp sections are ideal for growing and harboring toxic mold. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets – and – if water is penetrating down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to test your roof and chimney soon.
