CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR WEST HAMPTON DUNES

What’s The Need For Chimney Cap Repairs?

Chimney caps protect 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 maintenance of a residence. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your West Hampton Dunes home from water problems. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your chimney cap in place will slowly erode, making your roof susceptible to leaks. Chimney cap repair is your first line of defense from water damage.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from damaging your structure. If water is allowed to intrude into your structure through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for leaks. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Chimney Cap Harm To Check For

Even if your chimney seems to be okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that might not be evident to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of snoxious mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to replace. If you notice detrimental mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an highly-skilled chimney cap company such as Expressway to inspect your residence’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Addressing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in West Hampton Dunes) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the chimney cap material. Rust trouble are common with certain types of chimney cap materials. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as your chimney cap repair helps avert water leakage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it is important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in good working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your West Hampton Dunes property 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 Leaks

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney caps that were installed when the chimney was originally built. 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 scrutinized for cracks, danger or breaks at least once a month.

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be resealed. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly addresses chimney caps that can no longer do its job in defending a structure from damaging water.

If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp places are fitting for growing and harboring harmful mold. Because breakage occurrs below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
