CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR PORT JEFFERSON STATION

Some Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps protect the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most essential parts of a home’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Port Jefferson Station home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other leaks. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy leakage to your Port Jefferson Station home and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to forestall rain water and melting snow from penetrating your dwelling. If water is allowed to get in into your residence through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Watching Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and test 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 structure that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of snoxious mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to fix. If you notice risky mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an expert chimney cap company such as Expressway to test your residence’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Alarming?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Port Jefferson Station) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the chimney cap material. Rust weakening are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on your Port Jefferson Station roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps stop water problems from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Recognizing Harm Below The Surface

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Port Jefferson Station are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. 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 fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can easily pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be addressed. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep your structure’s roof preserved. Chimney damage generally 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. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp places are good for growing and harboring noxious mold. Because harm occurrs below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
