CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MERRICK

What Problems Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

A chimney cap repair is generally your Merrick home’s first line of defense against water leakage. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to forestall your Merrick residence from water leakage. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath your 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 protecting your Merrick dwelling from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from leaking your home. If water looks allowed to penetrate into the residence through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water intrusion.

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Merrick) 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. Improperly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap appears harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Merrick dwelling 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 Inspections

Many of the home’s chimneys in Merrick are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next factor that our technicians would inspect the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be inspected for cracks, problems or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney leakage frequently begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Property materials can simply develop problems over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are optimal for growing and harboring detrimental mold. Because breakage occurrs below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs.
