CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MILLER PLACE

Some Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is usually your Miller Place residence’s first line of defense against water damage. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a structure’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to stop your Miller Place property from water damage. 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. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and securing your Miller Place property from water penetration.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. When installed properly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Chimney Cap Damage To Look For

Even if your chimney looks dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be evident to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your home’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Clogged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Miller Place) 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. Workers on your home’s Miller Place roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause leaks to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps prevent water leakage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is harmed
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your 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
  • Your chimney is leaking water into your dwelling.

Whether your Miller Place 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.

Recognizing Damage Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak underneath the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep your property’s roof protected. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Structural materials can simply develop problems over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water penetration. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
