CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR PATTERSQUASH ISLAND

What Trouble Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

Chimney caps cushion the section 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. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Pattersquash Island home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other leaks. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof vulnerable to leaks. Chimney cap repair is the 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 penetrate into the dwelling through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Damage To Check For

Following a storm, walk around your home and analyze for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking damage. Our professional chimney techs will find the source of the complication and replace it ASAP. On your home’s roof, do you see detrimental 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?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Pattersquash Island) 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 problems are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s cap looks leaky, it can quickly become a major leak if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is damaged
  • When your chimney cap looks rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • the chimney cap is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • Your chimney looks leaking water into your residence.

Whether your Pattersquash Island residence 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 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 addressed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can guardedly pass by the chimney cap.

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

Dwelling items can simply develop problems over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials can be severely damaged by regular water invasion. Because leakage begins below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
