CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR NORTH MERRICK

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is most commonly your North Merrick residence’s first line of defense against water breakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate upkeep of a residence. 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 problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other problems. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is your 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 the chimney. When installed precisely, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water aggression.

Evaluating Chimney Cap Damage

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

Repairing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in North Merrick) 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. Improperly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your home’s North Merrick roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rusted from the elements will eventually cause leaks to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps forestall water leakage from happening to the roof deck and shingle system. 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 efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is broken
  • When your chimney cap seems to be 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
  • the chimney looks leaking water into your residence.

Whether your North Merrick property 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.

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in North Merrick are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next element that our pros would analyze the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be repaired Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be analyzed for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak beyond the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep your structure’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a dwelling from penetrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp spots are best for growing and harboring threatening mold. Because damage begins below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
