CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR PORT JEFFERSON

Some Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps protect the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten spots when it comes to the adequate preservation of a dwelling. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other problems. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water aggression.

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 penetrate 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 inspections to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Ispecting For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be visible to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see 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?

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Port Jefferson) 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. Improperly installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your Port Jefferson roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is harmed
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the 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 residence.

Whether your Port Jefferson 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.

Chimney Cap Complications

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Port Jefferson are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next component that we would assess for is if the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be investigated for cracks, defects or breaks at least once a month.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the structure’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 replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a residence from aggressive water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be severely damaged by regular water invasion. Mold is known to be noxious 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 inspect your roof and chimney soon.
