CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MALVERNE

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 important parts of a residence’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Malverne home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof wide open to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe problems to your Malverne property and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. If water is allowed to get in into your home through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

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 the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep your structure’s roof cushioned.

Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water infiltration.
