CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR PORT WASHINGTON

What Harm Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

Chimney caps cushion the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to the adequate prolongation of a home. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Port Washington 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 starts a host of other harm. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof sensitive to leaks. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water infiltration.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to avert rain water and melting snow from leaking your residence. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to cushion your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water intrusion.
