CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR NORTHPORT

What Harm Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

A chimney cap repair is generally your Northport residence’s first line of protection against water damage. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to the adequate maintenance of a structure. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Northport home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to forestall your Northport residence from water damage. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your Northport structure and parts of the chimney.

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 get in into your structure through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Cap Damage To Inspect For

Even if your chimney seems to be functional after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be obvious to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the breakage and repair it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of sadverse mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to remedy. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

A variety of conditions can damage your chimney cap and begin 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 weakening are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap is problematic, it can quickly become a major problem if left passed over. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is harmed
  • When the chimney cap seems to be 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
  • Your chimney appears leaking water into your home.

Chimney cap repairs for your home should last about 20 years in Northport’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Recognizing Destruction Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. Most of the time, this can be replaced by cutting out the old metal chimney cap with an angle grinder and replacing it with a new chimney cap. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be checked for cracks, leaks or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. Chimney inspection appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in cushioning a structure from penetrating water.

Residence products can simply develop problems over time. Mold growth – which is most commonly in dark, undrafted and damp spots are best for growing and harboring detrimental mold. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
