CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MILLER PLACE

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps defend the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other weakening. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water intrusion.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from leaking your house. If water looks allowed to enter into the structure 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 protect the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Cap Damage To Evaluate For

Following a storm, walk around your structure and analyze for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking damage. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. On your home’s roof, do you see threatening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice noxious mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney cap company such as Expressway to test your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Correcting Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of elements can rot the chimney cap and cause the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Imprecisely-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause damage to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps impede water damages from happening 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 fine working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is dislodge
  • When the chimney cap looks rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap is coming loose
  • Your 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 residence.

Whether your Miller Place property 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 dwelling’s chimneys in Miller Place are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be replaced 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 inspected for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp areas are ideal for growing and harboring dangerous mold. Because damage occurrs below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
