CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR PATCHOGUE HIGHLANDS

What Damage Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

A chimney cap repair is generally your Patchogue Highlands home’s first line of protection against water damage. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected places when it comes to the adequate preservation of a property. 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 initiates a host of other leaks. Chimney cap repairs are usually made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water penetration.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water appears allowed to enter into the residence through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water penetration.

Ispecting Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and check for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking complication. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the problem and replace it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see harmful mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice toxic mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, reach an expert chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to test your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Obstructed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Patchogue Highlands) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Rust damage are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap is broken, it can quickly become a major harm if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is broken
  • When the chimney cap appears rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap is coming loose
  • the chimney cap looks covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • the chimney is leaking water into your home.

Whether your Patchogue Highlands structure 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.

Chimney Cap Problems

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can readily pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the property’s roof defended. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a residence from infiltrating water.

House items can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp areas are good for growing and harboring harmful mold. Because harm occurrs 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 maintain your roof and chimney soon.
