CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SOUTHAMPTON

A Few Of The Numerous Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps secure 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 home. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Southampton home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to stall your Southampton property from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof open to leaks. If water gets below the chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from infiltrating into the property’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

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 appears allowed to flow down into the dwelling through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to preserve your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water penetration.

Chimney Cap Harm To Watch For

Even if your chimney appears functional after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be evident to a novice eye. 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. On your home’s roof, do you see noxious mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Southampton) 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. 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 the chimney’s cap seems to be broken, it can quickly become a major problem if left ignored. 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 your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Southampton structure 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.

Spotting Broken Chimney Caps

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Southampton are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be repaired 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.

Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of your dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be resealed. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage most commonly begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Dwelling pieces can simply develop problems over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be really broken by regular water aggression. Because breakage happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to maintain your roof and chimney soon.
