CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR NORTH HAVEN

A Few Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is generally your North Haven structure’s first line of defense against water leakage. A chimney cap is one of the most essential 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. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to forestall your North Haven property from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and defending your North Haven property from water aggression.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from damaging your residence. When installed correctly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to cushion your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Cap Harm To Inspect For

Following a storm, walk around your structure and evaluate 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 dwelling that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see adverse mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Damaged?

A variety of factors can harm your chimney cap and cause 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 damage are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on your North Haven roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is leaky, it can quickly become a major problem if left ignored. 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 your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is damaged
  • When the chimney cap appears rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap is coming loose
  • the chimney cap looks 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 residence.

Whether your North Haven residence 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 Harm Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. 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 easily pass by the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of your residence’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be fixed. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the home’s roof defended. Chimney damage frequently begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp places are fitting for growing and harboring risky mold. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets – and – if water is infiltrating down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
