CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR RIVERHEAD

A Few Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is typically your Riverhead dwelling’s first line of protection against water damage. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a residence’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Riverhead home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your Riverhead structure from water leakage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof open to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe leakage to your Riverhead residence and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from leaking your residence. If water appears 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 preserve the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water intrusion.

Watching For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure and analyze for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking complication. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see unhealthy 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?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Alarming?

A variety of parts can harm the chimney cap and initiate the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the chimney cap material. Incorrectly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has rusted from the elements will eventually cause problems to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps hamper water leakage from happening 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 good working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Recognizing Disturbances Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. 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 addressed 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 the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the structure’s roof preserved. Chimney damage typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Structural products can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building products can be heavily harmed by regular water intrusion. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is damaging down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
