CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SHELTER ISLAND

Some Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps defend the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate preservation of a residence. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to stop your Shelter Island residence from water damage. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets under the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from aggressive into your property’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

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 is allowed to penetrate into the home through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to cushion your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Damage To Check For

Even if your chimney seems to be fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be obvious to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the problem and reseal it ASAP. On your home’s roof, do you see detrimental mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice risky mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an highly-skilled chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to evaluate your dwelling’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Renovating Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of conditions can dislodge the chimney cap and begin the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the chimney cap material. Incorrectly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the Shelter Island roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps hamper water harm from occurring 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 optimum working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is broken
  • When the chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap is 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 looks leaking water into your home.

Whether your Shelter Island structure 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.

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. Most of the time, this can be fixed 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 resealed 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 below the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep your home’s roof preserved. Chimney leakage usually 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 property building materials can be really harmed by regular water infiltration. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
