Chimney caps preserve the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to the adequate upkeep of a home. 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 harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other leaks. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof prone 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 protecting your Northwest Landing dwelling from water penetration.

When installed precisely, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water intrusion.
