CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR PLANDOME HEIGHTS

A Few Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps cushion the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten sections when it comes to the adequate upkeep 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 broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts 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. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water intrusion.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from leaking your house. When installed correctly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water infiltration.

Assessing 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. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your dwelling which can include the growth of stoxic mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to remedy. If you notice threatening mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an fully-trained chimney cap company such as Expressway to evaluate your dwelling’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Plandome Heights) 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 Plandome Heights roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps avert water damages from happening to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is damaged
  • When your chimney cap seems to be rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • Your 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 dwelling.

Whether your Plandome Heights dwelling 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 Harm Below The Surface

Many of the home’s chimneys in Plandome Heights are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be resealed 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 inspected for cracks, problems or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak underneath the chimney cap. Chimney inspection appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a structure from infiltrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp areas are good for growing and harboring adverse mold. Mold is known to be toxic to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your residence, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to reseal. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
