CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR LOCUST VALLEY

What Trouble Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps defend the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to the adequate conservation of a property. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Locust Valley home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Locust Valley home from water damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof prone to leaks. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stop rain water and melting snow from infiltrating your home. When installed properly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to cushion the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Watching For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and analyze for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call us immediately. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the breakage and replace it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of snoxious mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. If you notice dangerous mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an fully-trained chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to maintain your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of factors can harm your chimney cap and cause 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. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s cap looks harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left neglected. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Locust Valley property 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 An Issue 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 resealed 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 your roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the residence’s roof protected. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a residence from infiltrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp places are excellent for growing and harboring threatening mold. Because harm begins below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
