CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR LYNBROOK

Some Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps secure the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected areas when it comes to the adequate conservation of a property. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Lynbrook home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Lynbrook dwelling from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water damage.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. When installed precisely, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks fine 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 trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to repair. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an professional chimney cap company such as Expressway to inspect your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Lynbrook) 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. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps stall water damage 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 harmed
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap is coming loose
  • the chimney cap is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • the chimney is leaking water into your residence.

Whether your Lynbrook 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.

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next thing that our pros would analyze for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Missing mortar joints also need to be corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak below the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep your home’s roof secured. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a home from penetrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets – and – if water is penetrating down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to address. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
