What Trouble Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

A chimney cap repair is usually your Pattersquash Island home’s first line of defense against water problems. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate sustainment of a dwelling. 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 harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other harm. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof prone to leaks. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and defending your Pattersquash Island residence from water infiltration.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. If water is allowed to flow down into your dwelling through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Ispecting For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. 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 eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Clogged?

A variety of factors can harm the chimney cap and cause the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney cap material. Rust weakening are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on the Pattersquash Island roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is damaged, it can quickly become a major harm if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is harmed
  • 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
  • the chimney is leaking water into your home.

Whether your Pattersquash Island house 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.

Recognizing Damage Below The Surface

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 repaired 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 harmlessly pass the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the residence’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be resealed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in cushioning a property from aggressive water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
