CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR PANTIGO

What Is The Importance Of Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Pantigo structure’s first line of defense against water breakage. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your Pantigo structure from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and protecting your Pantigo residence from water aggression.

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

Chimney Cap Problems To Watch For

Even if your chimney looks fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be visible to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the complication and repair it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to fix. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Addressing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Pantigo) 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 issues are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Workers on a Pantigo roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps hamper water harm from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is broken
  • When the chimney cap is 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 is leaking water into your structure.

Whether your Pantigo property 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.

Spotting Harmed Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. Most of the time, this can be repaired 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 scrutinized for cracks, leaks or breaks at least once a month.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of your residence’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

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