CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SOUTH HAVEN

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is generally your South Haven property’s first line of defense against water leakage. A chimney cap is one of the most essential parts of a dwelling’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 South Haven home from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are frequently made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the 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 cushioning your South Haven property from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from infiltrating your residence. If water is allowed to intrude into the home through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water penetration.

Chimney Cap Damage To Look For

Even if your chimney looks fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be obvious 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. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the damage and repair it ASAP. On your residence’s roof, do you see detrimental mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in South Haven) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney cap material. Rust leaks are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap seems to be harmed, it can quickly become a major leak if left passed over. 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 prime working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is damaged
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If the 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
  • the chimney is leaking water into your dwelling.

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

Spotting Problematic Chimney Caps

Many of the chimneys that our technicians 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 investigated for cracks, damage or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak beyond the chimney cap. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in cushioning a property from penetrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely broken by regular water penetration. Because damage begins 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.
