CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SHOREHAM

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is generally your Shoreham dwelling’s first line of defense against water leakage. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten spots when it comes to the adequate prolongation of a property. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, 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 open to leaks. If water gets past the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding into your property’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

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

Ispecting For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney appears okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be evident to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address for very long. On your residence’s roof, do you see adverse mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Shoreham) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Imprecisely-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a Shoreham roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap looks problematic, it can quickly become a major leak if left overlooked. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Complications

Many of the chimneys that our technicians repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first built. 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be resealed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can guardedly pass by the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the residence’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be addressed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney leakage generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Residence materials can simply develop harm over time. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp spots are good for growing and harboring unhealthy mold. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is leaking down into your residence, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to repair. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
