CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SANDS POINT

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is typically your Sands Point residence’s first line of defense against water leakage. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a dwelling’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Sands Point home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other weakening. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water penetration.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to avert rain water and melting snow from leaking your structure. If water is allowed to intrude into the structure through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water penetration.

Analyzing For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and test for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see threatening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice harmful mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an professional chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to test your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Addressing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Sands Point) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. 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. If the chimney’s cap seems to be leaky, it can quickly become a major problem if left neglected. 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 good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Sands Point dwelling 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 property’s chimneys in Sands Point are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next part that our pros would analyze the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be scrutinized for cracks, leaks or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection looks to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney leakage typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is most commonly in dark, undrafted and damp areas are ideal for growing and harboring risky mold. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your residence, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
