Keep Water and Pests Out of Your Home
One of the areas of your roof which is prone to trouble is the chimney. Water and unwanted pests can infiltrate your home via your chimney and vent pipes. The roofing experts at PJ Fitzpatrick can diagnose problems you’re having with your roof and repair any leaks or other issues around your chimney cap or other roof vents quickly and efficiently.
Chimney caps keep water, snow, birds, and other pests from entering your chimney and causing damage to your home. They also help prevent downdrafts that send hot or cold air into your home. If your chimney doesn’t have a cap, we can install one for you for that added protection. We also can repair or replace your roof vent pipe collars and flashing to keep water from coming in the gaps in your roof.
Replacement Chimney Cap Installation
Many homes have fireplaces with chimneys that aren’t fully protected from the elements. Installing a chimney cap can help preserve the structural integrity of your chimney and prevent unwanted moisture and unwanted pests from getting into your home. There are many styles to choose from and our chimney cap installation experts will help you choose one that will have you protected and make your home look good at the same time.

Replacement Pipe Vent Collars
If improperly installed and not covered with flashing (see more on roof flashing) water can infiltrate your house through the crack between your roof and vent pipes. Chimney flashing is applied at the base of the chimney with a continuous sheet of metal so that water runs around this problem spot and cannot enter your home. We can also replace damaged pipe collars.
Vent Pipe Collar Repair
If you have noticed stains on your ceilings you may have a roof leak at one of your vent pipes. Water enters the cracks around the pipes and runs down until it hits a stopping point. This can be caused by weathered and cracked rubber collars or poorly installed flashing around the pipe. Our roof repair experts can repair your damaged vent pipe collars or flashing.
