CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SQUASSUX LANDING

What Damage Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps preserve the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten spots when it comes to the adequate conservation of a dwelling. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Squassux Landing home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other leaks. Chimney cap repairs are frequently made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath the 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 enter into your residence through a gap caused by leaking or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to defend the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Ispecting For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and check 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 home that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without replace for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see detrimental 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?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Squassux Landing) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage 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. Workers on your home’s Squassux Landing roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause problems to the roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps stop water harm from happening to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Leaks

Many of the residence’s chimneys in Squassux Landing are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be replaced 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 investigated for cracks, leaks or breaks at least once a month.

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

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building products can be heavily deteriorated by regular water insertion. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets – and – if water is penetrating down into your residence, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to replace. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
