CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR UPPER BROOKVILLE

What Damage Does A Chimney Cap Repair Fix?

Chimney caps secure the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected places when it comes to the adequate preservation of a home. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Upper Brookville home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other issues. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks. If water gets past your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding into the residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. If water looks allowed to intrude into the dwelling through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for alarm. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney assessments to preserve your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water intrusion.

Analyzing For Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney looks okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be evident to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking problem. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of sadverse mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to repair. If you notice adverse mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an highly-skilled chimney cap chimney contractor such as Expressway to evaluate your dwelling’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Leaky?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Upper Brookville) 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 weakening are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Workers on your home’s Upper Brookville roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is damaged, it can quickly become a major harm if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s always important to ensure that the chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is damaged
  • When your chimney cap is rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap seems to be 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 dwelling.

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

Chimney Cap Problems

Many of the chimneys that our pros repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was first 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be renovated and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can cautiously pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak underneath the chimney cap. Chimney inspection looks to be 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 dwelling building products can be severely damaged by regular water intrusion. Mold is known to be adverse to humans and pets – and – if water is aggressive down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to fix. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
