Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. 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 fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of your structure’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney cap needs to be repaired. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep the structure’s roof protected. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be really harmed by regular water penetration. Because leakage begins 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 test your roof and chimney soon.
