CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR WESTMORELAND

A Few Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps preserve the section atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most neglected areas when it comes to the adequate preservation of a home. Chimney cap damage is rarely seen from the ground – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to avert your Westmoreland property from water damage. Chimney cap repairs are most commonly made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water penetration.

A chimney cap repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water is allowed to enter into the residence 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 protect your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water intrusion.

Assessing For Chimney Cap Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and maintain for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking damage. Expressway’s professional chimney pros recommend you never let leaks go without address for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your structure which can include the growth of snoxious mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to fix. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Closed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Westmoreland) 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 materials. Workers on your Westmoreland roof may also inadvertently damage or dislodge the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is problematic, it can quickly become a major problem if left forgetten about. 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 prime working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

Whether your Westmoreland 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.

Spotting Problematic Chimney Caps

Many of the property’s chimneys in Westmoreland are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be repaired 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 corrected 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 below the chimney cap. Chimney inspection appears a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly fixes chimney caps that can no longer do its job in cushioning a property from eroding water.

Home products can simply develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be really damaged by regular water invasion. Because harm begins below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to evaluate your roof and chimney soon.
