CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SOUTH MANOR

Some Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps cushion the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected places when it comes to the adequate prolongation of a residence. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to hamper your South Manor structure from water damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof open to leaks. Replacing your chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and securing your South Manor residence from water infiltration.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow from eroding your home. When installed properly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water infiltration.

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and analyze for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. 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. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of ssickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to repair. If you notice adverse mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an expert chimney cap company such as Expressway to inspect your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Fixing Your Own Chimney Cap

A variety of elements can damage your chimney cap and initiate the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace the chimney cap material. Rust issues are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has rusted from the elements will eventually cause leaks to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps prevent water damages from happening to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Recognizing Weakening Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was initially built. 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, defects or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. Chimney inspection looks to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are best for growing and harboring threatening mold. Because damage happens 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.
