CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MECOX

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is typically your Mecox home’s first line of protection against water problems. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked spots when it comes to the adequate prolongation of a dwelling. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other issues. Chimney cap repairs are frequently made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and preserving your Mecox home from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from leaking your property. When installed precisely, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Cap Harm To Check For

Even if your chimney seems to be fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be visible to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of snoxious mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Blocked?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Mecox) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Rust harms are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on a Mecox roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap appears broken, it can quickly become a major harm if left ignored. 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 good working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is harmed
  • When your chimney cap seems to be rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap is coming loose
  • the chimney cap looks 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 Mecox 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 Leaky Chimney Caps

Many of the home’s chimneys in Mecox are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be repaired 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, danger or breaks at least once a month.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney problems frequently begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

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 optimal for growing and harboring unhealthy mold. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
