CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR RONKONKOMA

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps protect 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 residence’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other harm. Chimney cap repairs are generally made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and protecting your Ronkonkoma property from water penetration.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from penetrating your house. If water is allowed to flow down into your structure through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to cushion your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Analyzing For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks functional after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be obvious to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see risky mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Ronkonkoma) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the chimney cap material. Rust weakening are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on the Ronkonkoma roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps stall water damages from happening to your roof deck and shingle system. 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 efficient working order.

Some Signs your 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
  • Your chimney cap seems to be covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • Your chimney appears leaking water into your dwelling.

Whether your Ronkonkoma house 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 Leaky Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. Most of the time, this can be resealed 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 guardedly pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the property’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be resealed. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage frequently begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building products can be heavily harmed by regular water intrusion. Mold is known to be adverse to humans and pets – and – if water is aggressive down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
