CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SEA CLIFF

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps secure the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a home’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Sea Cliff home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other issues. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof sensitive to leaks. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water intrusion.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from eroding your dwelling. When installed precisely, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Checking For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and evaluate for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of snoxious mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to remedy. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Repairing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of parts can break your chimney cap and cause the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Rust damage are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on your home’s Sea Cliff roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps hamper water damages from happening to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly 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 the chimney cap is harmed
  • When your chimney cap looks rusted or rotted through
  • If the 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 residence.

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

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the home’s chimneys in Sea Cliff are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. 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 repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can freely pass by the chimney cap.

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

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building products can be severely broken by regular water insertion. Mold is known to be toxic to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
