CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR MUTTONTOWN

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps secure the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked sections when it comes to the adequate sustainment of a structure. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong 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. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof prone to leaks. If water gets under the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding into the dwelling’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

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

Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Our expert chimney techs will find the source of the issue and fix it ASAP.

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 optimum working order.

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Muttontown are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be resealed 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 investigated for cracks, defects or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak below the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the home’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a dwelling from eroding water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is most commonly in dark, undrafted and damp spots are best for growing and harboring risky mold. Mold is known to be toxic to humans and pets – and – if water is infiltrating down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to reseal. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
