What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is generally your Mineola property’s first line of integrity against water leakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to the adequate prolongation 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 stop your Mineola dwelling from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are usually made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets beyond your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from damaging into the residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from damaging your dwelling. If water appears allowed to intrude into your property through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Alarming?

A variety of conditions can dislodge your chimney cap and initiate 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. Incorrectly-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 rotted from the elements will eventually cause damage to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps stop water problems from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Chimney cap repairs for your dwelling should last about 20 years in Mineola’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Chimney Cap Leaks

Many of the residence’s chimneys in Mineola are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. 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 easily pass by the chimney cap.

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

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building products can be severely harmed by regular water insertion. Because leakage begins below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
