CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR TOWN OF ISLIP

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps protect the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a property’s healthy chimney. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to stall your Town Of Islip residence from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep the chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof vulnerable to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and heavy damage to your Town Of Islip structure and parts of the chimney.

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 penetrate into your structure through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Cap Damage To Evaluate For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and check for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the issue and repair it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see sickening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Replacing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Town Of Islip) 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 leaks are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has corroded from the elements will eventually cause problems to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps stop water harm from happening to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is broken
  • When the chimney cap looks 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 seems to be leaking water into your residence.

Whether your Town Of Islip 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 Inspections

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. 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 investigated for cracks, leaks or breaks at least once a month.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak underneath the chimney cap. Chimney inspection appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney leakage frequently 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. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp spots are good for growing and harboring noxious mold. Because breakage occurrs below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
