Chimney Repair Near Lattingtown


What Is The Need Of Regular Chimney Repairs?

Chimneys secure the area atop the chimney from water penetrating where the roof joins the chimney. A chimney is one of the most imperitive parts of a home’s integrity. Chimney damage is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Chimney repairs are vital to stall your Lattingtown dwelling from water invasion. The chimney caulking used to keep your chimney in place can slowly erode, making your roof susceptible to leaks. Chimney repair is your fist line of defense from water damage.

A chimney fix is almost always made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of your chimney. If water is allowed to flow down into the residence through a gap caused by damages or missing chimney cap, there should be major cause for worry. Expressway provides chimney services, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Chimney Issues To Look Out For

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains and in your house and ceilings using a flashlight – if possible. 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 specialists recommend you never let leaks go without a repair for very long. Leaky roofs always cause additional problems to other parts of your structure – which can include the growth of threatening mold and mildew – and that will eventually cost you thousands more to fix. Are there obvious shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Become Alarming?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Lattingtown) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney products. Rust elements (which are common with certain types of chimney products). Old age – i.e. many storms, cold winters and hot summers could also decrease your chimney’s lifespan. If the chimney’s is leaky, it can quickly become a major breakage if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney, it is essential to ensure that the chimney is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney could Need Expressway:

  • the chimney is moving or fallen
  • your chimney is rusted or rotted through in spots
  • the chimney is coming unhinged
  • the chimney covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles (or having other roofing work done)
  • Your chimney is allowing water into your residence.

Chimney Destruction Issues

Many of the chimneys that our pros fix are the same chimneys that were installed when the chimney was originally built. Most of the time this can be repaired by cutting out the old leaky metal or brick chimney with an angle grinder and replacing the problematic pieces with new brick or metal. Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can pass the chimney cap. Chimney cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney may leak past the chimney cap or crown. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney leakage most commonly begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage could be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp areas are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets and if water is damaging down into your structure, the growth could be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
