CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR UNIVERSITY GARDENS

A Few Of The Multiple Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps cushion the place atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most forgotten spots when it comes to the adequate prolongation of a property. 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 leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other damage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks. Warped or missing chimney cap parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your University Gardens residence and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow from penetrating your home. When installed exactly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water infiltration.

Assessing Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be functional after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be noticeable to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without fix for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your residence which can include the growth of sharmful mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to fix. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Renovating Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in University Gardens) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace the chimney cap material. Rust problems are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s cap seems to be broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left slighted. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your University Gardens 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 Inspections

Many of the structure’s chimneys in University Gardens 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be resealed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can harmlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak under the chimney cap. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage typically 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. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be seriously damaged by regular water insertion. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, customers 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.
