CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR NORTH HEMPSTEAD

Some Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is usually your North Hempstead structure’s first line of defense against water harm. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their North Hempstead home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof susceptible 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 preserving your North Hempstead home from water penetration.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. If water is allowed to penetrate into your 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 defend your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Analyzing Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect 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 structure that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to fix. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

A variety of conditions can harm the chimney cap and begin the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace the chimney cap material. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the North Hempstead roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps avert water harm from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is harmed
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap is coming loose
  • Your 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 structure.

Whether your North Hempstead dwelling 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 Damage Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. The next part that we would evaluate for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be renovated Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

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

Home pieces can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be risky to humans and pets – and – if water is penetrating 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.
