CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR WESTBURY

A Few Of The Many Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps preserve the area atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked spots when it comes to the adequate sustainment of a residence. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Westbury home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Westbury dwelling from water leakage. Chimney cap repairs are typically made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water aggression.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. When installed properly, 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 your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Assessing For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and test for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking issue. Our trained chimney techs will find the source of the problem and repair it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sthreatening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Worrisome?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Westbury) 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 metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s cap looks leaky, it can quickly become a major problem if left slighted. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Complications

Many of the residence’s chimneys in Westbury are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be resealed 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 fixed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can effortlessly pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney cap. Chimney inspection seems to be a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm most commonly begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

Structural products can simply develop leakage over time. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp spots are excellent for growing and harboring unhealthy mold. Because leakage begins below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
