CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR WEST ISLIP

Some Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps defend the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected spots when it comes to the adequate preservation of a residence. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their West Islip home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to impede your West Islip property from water leakage. The chimney cap caulking used to keep your 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 severe harm to your West Islip structure and parts of the chimney.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow from leaking your dwelling. If water looks allowed to get in into your home 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 your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable corrosion caused by excessive water penetration.

Analyzing Chimney Cap Damage

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

Do I Need My Chimney Cap Repaired?

A variety of things can weaken the chimney cap and cause the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Rust trouble are common with certain types of chimney cap products. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. A chimney cap that has rusted from the elements will eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps hamper water damage from happening 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 the chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

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

The next component that our chimney experts would analyze the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be corrected and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can readily pass by the chimney cap.

Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your home’s chimney system, identify whether your chimney cap needs to be repaired. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the places in question and help to keep your structure’s roof preserved.

Dwelling items can simply develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building products can be severely broken by regular water infiltration.
