CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR RIDGE

Some Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps defend the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Ridge home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Ridge residence from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are frequently made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy damage to your Ridge dwelling and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stop rain water and melting snow from leaking your residence. When installed correctly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years.

A variety of parts can rot the chimney cap and initiate 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 leaks are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Workers on the Ridge roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left omitted. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Spotting Broken Chimney Caps

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Ridge are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next element that our chimney experts would analyze the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be repaired Missing mortar joints also need to be resealed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can freely pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in securing a structure from eroding water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp spots are best for growing and harboring unhealthy mold. Mold is known to be toxic to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to address. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
