Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Smithtown 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 begins a host of other harm.

Spotting Broken Chimney Caps

Many of the property’s chimneys in Smithtown are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace’s crown needs to be inspected for cracks, leaks or breaks at least once a month.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be resealed. Chimney inspection appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Residence materials can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is most commonly in dark, undrafted and damp areas are excellent for growing and harboring noxious mold. Mold is known to be noxious to humans and pets – and – if water is infiltrating down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to reseal.
