What Does A Chimney Repair Address?

Chimneys cushion the spot atop the chimney from water damaging where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney is one of the most important parts of a property’s integrity. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Merrick home’s (or business’s) chimney. When roof or chimney repair becomes damaged, it loses its resistance to water insertion and leaks initiate a host of other issues. Chimney repairs are generally made with cement or thin metal (tin, steel or aluminum) that is usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Warped or missing chimney parts can lead to serious water leak and severe damage to your Merrick residence and parts of the chimney.

A chimney repair is typically made with concrete or metal – spread or screwed to fit securely around the top of the chimney. When installed exactly, proper chimney repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney services, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

Checking For Chimney Leakage

Even if your chimney looks good after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are sections in your residence that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our highly-skilled chimney techs will find the source of the problem and repair it ASAP. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there some shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Repaired Or Replaced?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Merrick) 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 to get in. Inexactly installed chimneys or poor-quality cement or caulking products used in the sealing process could be to blame. Old age – i.e. many storms, cold winters and hot summers will also reduce your chimney’s lifespan. A chimney that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to your roofing layout, as the chimney repair helps stop water leakage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle design. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained chimney, it’s always essential to ensure that your chimney is kept in efficient working order.

Chimney repairs should last about 20 years in Merrick’s climate – but can fluctuate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s climate, storms and other weather patterns.

Chimney Adversity

Many of the chimneys that we repair are the same chimney that were installed when the chimney was originally built. Most of the time this can be addressed by cutting out the old alarming metal or brick chimney with an angle grinder and replacing the damaged 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 can 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 problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets and if water is aggressive down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
