CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR RIDGE ISLAND

Some Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps cushion the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other leaks. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof sensitive to leaks. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water intrusion.

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 looks allowed to intrude into your structure through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Evaluating Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and test for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the leak and replace it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of snoxious mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to repair. If you notice threatening mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an fully-trained chimney cap company such as Expressway to analyze your residence’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 Ridge Island) 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. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s cap looks damaged, it can quickly become a major issue if left forgetten about. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the property’s chimneys in Ridge Island are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be replaced 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 resealed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can cautiously pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the structure’s roof defended. Chimney harm typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building products can be severely broken by regular water invasion. Because breakage happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
