CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MATINECOCK

What Is The Importance Of Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Matinecock home’s first line of defense against water harm. 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 Matinecock home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your Matinecock structure from water leakage. 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 the first line of defense from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from infiltrating your house. If water is allowed to intrude into the home through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Issues To Evaluate For

Even if your chimney looks functional 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 complication. Our professional chimney techs will find the source of the leak and replace it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage 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 remedy. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Clogged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Matinecock) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Rust leaks are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on the Matinecock roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Chimney cap repairs for your dwelling should last about 20 years in Matinecock’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. The next part that our technicians would watch for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed 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 underneath the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep your property’s roof secured. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a structure from damaging water.

Home materials can simply develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water intrusion. Because harm happens 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 inspect your roof and chimney soon.
