CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR TOWN OF OYSTER BAY

A Few Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps secure the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten sections when it comes to the adequate upkeep 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 broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other issues. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof vulnerable to leaks. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water intrusion.

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 looks allowed to enter into the dwelling through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Analyzing Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be dry after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s expert chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without replace for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sdangerous mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking 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 Oyster Bay) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace the chimney cap material. Improperly-installed chimney caps or poor-quality cement or caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the Town of Oyster Bay roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps forestall water damages from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs the Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If your chimney cap is dislodge
  • When your chimney cap looks 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 appears leaking water into your structure.

Whether your Town of Oyster Bay structure 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.

Recognizing Damage Below The Surface

Many of the chimneys that our chimney experts repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. The next part that our pros would analyze the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be addressed Missing mortar joints also need to be fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can readily pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. If your 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 the home’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a home from infiltrating water.

House products can simply develop breakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building products can be seriously broken by regular water intrusion. Mold is known to be detrimental to humans and pets – and – if water is penetrating down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
