CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR WOODBURY

What Issues Does A Chimney Cap Repair Repair?

Chimney caps secure the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney cap is one of the most imperitive parts of a residence’s healthy chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Woodbury home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. When roof or chimney cap repair becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other issues. Chimney cap repairs are usually made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney cap repair is the first line of defense from water infiltration.

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 appears allowed to get in into your residence through a gap caused by broken or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for damage. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable rust caused by excessive water infiltration.

Watching Chimney Cap Damage

Even if your chimney seems to be okay after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might not be visible to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of your chimney leaking complication. 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 replace. If you notice unhealthy mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, reach an expert chimney cap chimney company such as Expressway to analyze your home’s roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Replacing Your Own Chimney Cap

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Woodbury) 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 leaks are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s cap seems to be harmed, it can quickly become a major leak if left neglected. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

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

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

Chimney Cap Leaks

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Woodbury are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. The next component that we would look the bricks that are above the chimney cap need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be resealed and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can guardedly 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. Expressway regularly replaces chimney caps that can no longer do its job in preserving a residence from eroding water.

Residence materials can simply develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water invasion. Because harm occurrs below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to analyze your roof and chimney soon.
