CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MEACHAM

What Issues Does A Chimney Cap Repair Fix?

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 structure’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Meacham 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 starts a host of other issues. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof prone to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your Meacham dwelling 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. When installed exactly, 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 aggression.

Chimney Cap Issues To Inspect For

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking complication. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. 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 replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Meacham) 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. Rust weakening are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on a Meacham roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is damaged, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is damaged
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your 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
  • the chimney is leaking water into your home.

Whether your Meacham 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.

Chimney Cap Harms

Many of the home’s chimneys in Meacham are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next thing that we would inspect for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be studied for cracks, defects or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak underneath the chimney cap. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney leakage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be severely damaged by regular water aggression. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
