CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR LAKEVIEW

What Issues Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps protect the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a structure’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other harm. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof sensitive to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy problems to your Lakeview 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 get in into the property through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Trouble To Evaluate For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and test for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the problem and reseal it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of sadverse mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to fix. If you notice harmful mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to analyze your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Obstructed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Lakeview) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Rust trouble are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on your home’s Lakeview roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rusted from the elements will eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps stall water leakage from happening to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Lakeview residence has a fireplace that was built with masonry stone or brick – you’ll have to maintain the chimney cap so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Cap Problems

Many of the home’s chimneys in Lakeview 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 tested 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. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep your residence’s roof defended. Chimney damage typically 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 most commonly in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring sickening mold. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
