CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SILVER BEACH

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps protect the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Silver Beach 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 damage. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and defending your Silver Beach structure from water intrusion.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to avert rain water and melting snow from penetrating your residence. If water seems to be allowed to flow down into your dwelling through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to defend your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Cap Damage To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your structure 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 issue. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice harmful mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, reach an expert chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to analyze your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Blocked?

A variety of conditions can break your chimney cap and begin the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Rust trouble are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause weakening to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps prevent water damages from happening to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is damaged
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through

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

Spotting Harmed Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. Most of the time, this can be replaced by cutting out the old metal chimney cap with an angle grinder and replacing it with a new chimney cap. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be inspected for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be addressed. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep the dwelling’s roof secured. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a property from aggressive water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be seriously deteriorated by regular water penetration. 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 reseal. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
