CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR SWAN ISLAND

What Issues Does A Chimney Cap Repair Replace?

A chimney cap repair is typically your Swan Island property’s first line of protection against water harm. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten areas when it comes to the adequate prolongation of a home. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other issues. 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. If water gets under your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from aggressive into your structure’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to stop rain water and melting snow from aggressive your property. When installed correctly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to defend the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water intrusion.

Checking Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney appears dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be visible to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without reseal for very long. On your residence’s roof, do you see threatening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice adverse mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an highly-skilled chimney cap company such as Expressway to evaluate your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Renovating Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Swan Island) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Rust harms are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s cap is broken, it can quickly become a major harm if left slighted. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Swan Island dwelling 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.

Chimney Cap Problems

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Swan Island are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be fixed 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 studied 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 is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a dwelling from damaging water.

Property materials can simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp spots are good for growing and harboring threatening mold. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets – and – if water is eroding down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to address. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
