CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR POINT LOOKOUT

What Damage Does A Chimney Cap Repair Fix?

A chimney cap repair is frequently your Point Lookout dwelling’s first line of defense against water harm. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a residence’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your Point Lookout home from water leakage. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and cushioning your Point Lookout home from water intrusion.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow from damaging your property. If water seems to be allowed to flow down into your home 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 assessments to preserve your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Evaluating For 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. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see threatening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice sickening mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an professional chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to evaluate your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Addressing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of conditions can rot the chimney cap and start 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. Rust trouble are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Workers on the Point Lookout roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is harmed, it can quickly become a major harm if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Chimney cap repairs for your structure should last about 20 years in Point Lookout’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Recognizing Disturbances Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. The next component that our chimney experts would watch the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Missing mortar joints also need to be corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can easily pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep the home’s roof preserved. Chimney damage frequently begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building products can be heavily deteriorated by regular water seepage. Mold is known to be adverse to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to repair. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
