CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MOUNT SINAI

A Few Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps cushion the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten sections when it comes to the adequate preservation of a structure. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Mount Sinai home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof wide open to leaks. If water gets below your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from aggressive into your residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow from leaking your residence. If water appears allowed to get in into the residence 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 the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water aggression.

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be evident to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the damage and replace it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of stoxic mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Worrisome?

A variety of conditions can rot your chimney cap and begin 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. Rust trouble are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause harm to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps prevent water leakage from happening to the 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 excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is missing
  • When your chimney cap looks rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap seems to be 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 home.

Whether your Mount Sinai 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.

Recognizing Trouble Below The Surface

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Mount Sinai are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next component that our pros would inspect the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be addressed 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 your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep the home’s roof preserved. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a property from infiltrating water.

House materials can simply develop problems over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials can be seriously damaged by regular water invasion. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
