CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR NORTH HILLS

A Few Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is frequently your North Hills structure’s first line of integrity against water damage. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your North Hills dwelling from water damage. Chimney cap repairs are usually made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water infiltration.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from infiltrating your residence. 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 rotting caused by excessive water aggression.

Ispecting Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence 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. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without replace for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of sthreatening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to fix. If you notice unhealthy mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an expert chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to check your dwelling’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Replacing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in North Hills) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm 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 a North Hills roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap looks harmed, it can quickly become a major problem if left forgetten about. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your North Hills house 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.

Spotting Problematic Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that our technicians 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 fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can cautiously pass by the chimney cap.

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, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep the dwelling’s roof secured. Chimney leakage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Home materials can simply develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be severely damaged by regular water infiltration. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets – and – if water is penetrating down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
