CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR ORIENT POINT

What Issues Does A Chimney Cap Repair Fix?

Chimney caps preserve the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to the adequate preservation of a structure. 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 damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other problems. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets below the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding into your dwelling’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

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 cushion the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Cap Problems To Look For

Even if your chimney looks okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be obvious to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the harm and replace it ASAP. On your home’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. The next factor that our pros would analyze for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

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, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the home’s roof protected. Chimney leakage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Structural pieces can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be severely harmed by regular water insertion. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets – and – if water is infiltrating down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy.
