CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR LAUREL HOLLOW

What Is The Importance Of Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps defend the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a property’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 issues. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water intrusion.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stall rain water and melting snow from eroding your property. If water is allowed to enter into the structure through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Our professional chimney techs will find the source of the complication and replace it ASAP. On your home’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?
