CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR PLAINEDGE

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is typically your Plainedge residence’s first line of defense against water breakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten places when it comes to the adequate conservation of a structure. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Plainedge 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 initiates a host of other harm. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof 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 preserving your Plainedge residence from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from leaking your property. If water looks allowed to flow down into the residence 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 assessments to defend your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water infiltration.

Watching Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and maintain 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 home that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see harmful mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Repairing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of factors can damage the chimney cap and initiate the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Inexactly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your home’s Plainedge roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause harm to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps impede water damage from occurring to the 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 efficient working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Plainedge 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.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Caps

Many of the property’s chimneys in Plainedge are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next thing that we would watch the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Missing mortar joints also need to be addressed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can freely pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak below the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep the structure’s roof cushioned. Chimney problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are excellent for growing and harboring detrimental mold. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to test your roof and chimney soon.
