CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR THE TOWN OF RIVERHEAD

What Trouble Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps protect the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most essential parts of a structure’s healthy chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their The Town Of Riverhead 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 initiates a host of other leaks. Chimney cap repairs are usually made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets underneath your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding into your residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to avert rain water and melting snow from infiltrating your structure. If water seems to be allowed to intrude into your property 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 cushion the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water aggression.

Analyzing Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be evident to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our expert chimney techs will find the source of the leak and repair it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see dangerous mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth?

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in The Town Of Riverhead) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the chimney cap material. Rust harms are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on your The Town Of Riverhead roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap appears problematic, it can quickly become a major problem if left neglected. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is broken
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap appears 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 looks leaking water into your structure.

Whether your The Town Of Riverhead residence 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 Breakages

Many of the home’s chimneys in The Town Of Riverhead 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 analyzed for cracks, leaks or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak below the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the areas around the spots in question and help to keep your property’s roof secured. Expressway regularly repairs chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a home from penetrating water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building products can be heavily broken by regular water penetration. Because harm occurrs below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
