CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR LAUREL HOLLOW

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is frequently your Laurel Hollow residence’s first line of defense against water leakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten places when it comes to the adequate conservation of a property. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to forestall your Laurel Hollow dwelling from water leakage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof open to leaks. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and protecting your Laurel Hollow residence from water aggression.

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 penetrate into the residence through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water intrusion.

Evaluating For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be evident to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without replace for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sthreatening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

A variety of elements can damage the chimney cap and begin the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Imprecisely-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the Laurel Hollow roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps avert water leakage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Laurel Hollow dwelling 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.

Recognizing Disturbances Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially 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 repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can effortlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep your home’s roof preserved. Chimney damage generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building products can be really deteriorated by regular water seepage. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets – and – if water is aggressive down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to fix. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
