A chimney cap repair is typically your Old Westbury home’s first line of defense against water leakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate sustainment of a residence. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Old Westbury home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Old Westbury dwelling from water leakage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof sensitive to leaks.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from penetrating your residence. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Blocked?

A variety of conditions can break your chimney cap and start 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. Imprecisely-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your home’s Old Westbury roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause damage to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps stall water damage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

  • When your chimney cap appears 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 appears leaking water into your dwelling.

Chimney Cap Issues

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially 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 repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can cautiously pass by the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the property’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be addressed. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep your home’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in cushioning a residence from penetrating water.

House pieces can simply develop breakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be really harmed by regular water penetration. Because harm begins below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
