CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR LONG ISLAND

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps cushion the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate upkeep of a dwelling. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Long Island home from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks. If water gets beyond your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from infiltrating into the structure’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from damaging your structure. When installed properly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Damage To Inspect For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and check 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 home that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the breakage and replace it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see threatening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice dangerous mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an professional chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to inspect your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Obstructed?

A variety of conditions can damage your chimney cap and start the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Imprecisely-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the Long Island roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps forestall water harm from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is damaged
  • When your chimney cap appears rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • the 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 home.

Whether your Long Island house 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.

Spotting Broken Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that we 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be tested for cracks, problems or breaks at least once a month.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the residence’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be repaired. Chimney inspection looks to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp places are optimal for growing and harboring sickening mold. Mold is known to be noxious to humans and pets – and – if water is infiltrating down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to repair. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
