CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR THOMASTON

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

A chimney cap repair is typically your Thomaston property’s first line of integrity against water leakage. A chimney cap is one of the most essential parts of a structure’s healthy chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Thomaston 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 causes a host of other leaks. Chimney cap repairs are frequently made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Replacing the chimney cap (or chimney cap sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and securing your Thomaston dwelling from water penetration.

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 seems to be allowed to intrude into your dwelling through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to secure the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water aggression.

Evaluating Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and test 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 structure that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the damage and reseal it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Leaky?

A variety of elements can weaken your chimney cap and start the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. 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. Workers on a Thomaston roof may also inadvertently harm or dislodge the chimney cap. If the chimney’s cap seems to be leaky, it can quickly become a major problem if left passed over. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Breakages

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Thomaston 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 checked for cracks, danger or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak below the chimney cap. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm frequently begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

House pieces can simply develop harm over time. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp areas are good for growing and harboring threatening mold. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets – and – if water is infiltrating down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to reseal. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
