CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR NASSAU COUNTY

Some Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps preserve the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most essential parts of a home’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other harm. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof prone to leaks. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water infiltration.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water appears allowed to flow down into your structure through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to cushion the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water aggression.

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure and test for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Our professional chimney techs will find the source of the harm and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of sunhealthy mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to remedy. If you notice harmful mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an highly-skilled chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to check your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney cap material. Improperly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap is leaky, it can quickly become a major harm if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s 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 your chimney cap looks rusted or rotted through

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next factor that we would assess the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Missing mortar joints also need to be corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the property’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be repaired. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Home pieces can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be seriously harmed by regular water infiltration. Because breakage begins below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
