CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR NORTH BALDWIN

A Few Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps preserve 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 residence’s healthy chimney. 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 leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other problems. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and protecting your North Baldwin home from water aggression.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from penetrating your house. If water appears allowed to enter into the home through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Cap Harm To Check For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and check for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our professional chimney techs will find the source of the issue and repair it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of sdetrimental mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to remedy. 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?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in North Baldwin) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. 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. Workers on your home’s North Baldwin roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps forestall water problems from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is damaged
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap is coming loose
  • the chimney cap is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • Your chimney looks leaking water into your residence.

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

Chimney Cap Damage

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in North Baldwin 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be resealed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can effortlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in protecting a structure from aggressive water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp areas are fitting for growing and harboring noxious mold. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to address. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
