CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR ROSLYN HARBOR

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is frequently your Roslyn Harbor home’s first line of protection against water problems. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten places when it comes to the adequate maintenance of a structure. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Roslyn Harbor home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your Roslyn Harbor residence from water damage. 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 your chimney. If water seems to be allowed to enter into the residence through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Cap Issues To Evaluate For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and test 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 dwelling that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of ssickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of elements can break the chimney cap and begin 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. 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. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps avert water damage from occurring 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 your chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Complications

Many of the property’s chimneys in Roslyn Harbor are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be investigated for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep the structure’s roof protected. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a home from infiltrating water.

Dwelling materials can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be heavily deteriorated by regular water aggression. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to fix. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
