CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SOUTH JAMESPORT

What Problems Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps preserve the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to the adequate conservation of a dwelling. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their South Jamesport home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other leaks. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water aggression.

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 is allowed to penetrate into your dwelling through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for concern. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water intrusion.

Assessing For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking complication. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without replace for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in South Jamesport) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the chimney cap material. Rust problems are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on your home’s South Jamesport roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap appears harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left neglected. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is 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 broken
  • When your chimney cap appears rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap seems to be 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 residence.

Chimney cap repairs for your property should last about 20 years in South Jamesport’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 we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. The next factor that we would evaluate the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be fixed Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can guardedly pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether the 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 spots in question and help to keep the residence’s roof preserved. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a structure from aggressive water.

Residence materials can simply develop problems over time. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp places are excellent for growing and harboring noxious mold. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to fix. We suggest you call Expressway to test your roof and chimney soon.
