CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SOUND BEACH

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps secure the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most pertinent parts of a residence’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your Sound Beach home from water damage. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and securing your Sound Beach residence from water aggression.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. When installed precisely, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Trouble To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your residence and maintain for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that start to leak, call us immediately. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the breakage and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of sthreatening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. If you notice detrimental mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to maintain your structure’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Correcting Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Sound Beach) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Inexactly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a Sound Beach roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is damaged, it can quickly become a major leak if left slighted. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is broken
  • When your chimney cap seems to be rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • the 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 home.

Whether your Sound Beach property 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 residence’s chimneys in Sound Beach are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can carefully pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep your structure’s roof secured. Chimney leakage typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Dwelling pieces can simply develop breakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be heavily harmed by regular water seepage. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
