What Are Some Types Of Chimney Repairs?

Chimneys secure the section atop the chimney from water leaking where the roof meets the chimney. A chimney is one of the most imperitive parts of a structure’s integrity. Chimney damage is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney repair becomes broken, it loses its resistance to water seepage and leaks start a host of other issues. Chimney repairs are generally made with cement or thin metal (tin, steel or aluminum) that is usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney (or chimney sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and preserving your Plum Island property from water aggression.

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

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 begins to rain, you notice that there are places in your dwelling that begin to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney and roofing technicians recommend you never let leaks go without addressing for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there any shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Repaired Or Replaced?

A variety of things can harm the chimney and begin the need for either a chimney replacement or a full, new chimney replacement. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the chimney material. Incorrectly installed chimneys or poor-quality cement or caulking materials used in the sealing process could be to blame. Old age – i.e. many storms, cold winters and hot summers will also decrease your chimney’s lifespan. A chimney that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause harm to your roofing layout, as your chimney repair helps stall water damage from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney, it is important to ensure that your chimney is kept in optimum working order.

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

Spotting Adverse Chimney Parts

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Plum Island are over 50 years old or more and failing. Most of the time this can be fixed by cutting out the old leaky metal or brick chimney with an angle grinder and replacing the leaky pieces with new brick or metal. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace needs to be inspected for cracks at least once a month. Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of your home’s chimney system, identify whether the chimney needs to be replaced. 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 problems can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials can be severely harmed by regular water infiltration. Because harm happens 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 inspect your roof and chimney soon.
