CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SHIRLEY

A Few Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is generally your Shirley structure’s first line of protection against water damage. A chimney cap is one of the most important parts of a structure’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Shirley home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your Shirley residence from water leakage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof open to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy damage to your Shirley property and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the 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 damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Blocked?

A variety of factors can damage your chimney cap and start 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 rusted from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps avert 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 fine working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is missing
  • When the chimney cap appears rusted or rotted through
  • If the chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • Your chimney cap is 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 Shirley’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather.

Spotting Broken Chimney Caps

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

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be fixed. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep your structure’s roof protected. Chimney harm usually 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. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp places are fitting for growing and harboring detrimental mold. Because harm begins below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
