A Few Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

A chimney cap repair is most commonly your South Hempstead dwelling’s first line of protection against water damage. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten places when it comes to the adequate sustainment of a dwelling. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their South Hempstead home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your South Hempstead structure from water problems. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath the roof’s shingles.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water seems to be allowed to intrude into your home through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Damage To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your structure and inspect 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 dwelling that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of sdetrimental mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to fix. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Alarming?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in South Hempstead) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Inexactly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap appears leaky, it can quickly become a major problem if left passed over. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Recognizing Disturbances Below The Surface

Many of the property’s chimneys in South Hempstead are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be fixed 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 repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can readily pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the areas in question and help to keep your residence’s roof secured. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a home from aggressive water.

House products can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp areas are good for growing and harboring toxic mold. Because harm occurrs below the roof and out of sight, property owners 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.
