CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MIDDLE ISLAND

What Is The Importance Of Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Middle Island property’s first line of defense against water problems. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate conservation of a property. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Middle Island 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 begins a host of other problems. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stall rain water and melting snow from penetrating your residence. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Checking For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure 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 trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage 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. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an fully-trained chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to inspect your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Damaged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Middle Island) 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 is damaged, it can quickly become a major harm 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 optimum working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is harmed
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap is coming loose
  • the 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 dwelling.

Chimney cap repairs for your home should last about 20 years in Middle Island’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 technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. The next component that our pros would evaluate for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be repaired Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be tested for cracks, problems or breaks at least once a month.

Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your property’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be resealed. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep the property’s roof protected. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a home from damaging water.

Dwelling pieces can simply develop problems over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp areas are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
