CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR RIVERSIDE

Some Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps secure the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Riverside home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your Riverside property from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are frequently made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets underneath the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding into your residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from eroding your property. If water looks allowed to get in into the structure through a gap caused by harmed or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water penetration.

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and analyze 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 home that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sunhealthy mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to repair. 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 Obstructed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Riverside) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney cap material. Rust issues are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Workers on your Riverside roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap appears leaky, it can quickly become a major problem if left slighted. 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 optimum working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Riverside residence has a fireplace that was built with masonry stone or brick – you’ll have to maintain the chimney cap so that it won’t leak.

Spotting Broken Chimney Caps

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Riverside are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next part that our technicians would inspect the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be renovated and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can carefully pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your property’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be replaced. 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 dwelling’s roof defended. Chimney damage generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials can be really damaged by regular water invasion. Because leakage begins 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 inspect your roof and chimney soon.
