CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR NORTH WOODMERE

Some Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps secure the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their North Woodmere home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other leaks. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your North Woodmere home and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from leaking your structure. If water looks allowed to get in into the structure through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Cap Harm To Check For

Even if your chimney seems to be fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. On your residence’s roof, do you see detrimental mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Replacing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in North Woodmere) 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. Rust harms are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on your North Woodmere roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is broken, it can quickly become a major harm if left neglected. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your North Woodmere 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.

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. Most of the time, this can be fixed 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 corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can cautiously pass by the chimney cap.

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

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building products can be severely broken by regular water penetration. Because breakage begins below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
