CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MELVILLE

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps cushion the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked places when it comes to the adequate sustainment of a home. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your Melville home from water damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof susceptible to leaks. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water aggression.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water appears allowed to penetrate into the property 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 assessments to protect the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water aggression.

Ispecting For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney appears okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be obvious to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call us immediately. Our professional chimney techs will find the source of the breakage and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of sadverse mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to fix. If you notice detrimental mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney cap company such as Expressway to test your dwelling’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 Melville) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Rust issues are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on your Melville roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause damage to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps avert water damages from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is missing
  • When your chimney cap looks rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • the chimney cap looks covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • the chimney appears leaking water into your dwelling.

Whether your Melville 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 chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. The next component that our chimney experts would look the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be renovated Missing mortar joints also need to be resealed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can effortlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak beyond the chimney cap. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a home from infiltrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be seriously harmed by regular water intrusion. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets – and – if water is damaging down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
