Pro Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Bay Shore

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a property. The fact that chimneys will do their job fittingly, even when ignored, contributes to this aura that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property owners assume them to be. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and uplifted masonry products all present a problem to buildings.

Incorrectly lined chimneys will cause a number of immoderate structural and cosmetic worries for the homeowner and also create potentially essential safety hazards. Quite a bit of masonry chimney materials (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and can be like a brick chimney and it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and damage-prevention part. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our pros can advise you in your own subjective situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that will prevent some of the most expensive issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. The job of the chimney cap is to stop rain from entering the flue and to stop pests from building nests in your chimney or using the chimney for a doorway into your house. In especially windy areas chimneys also could prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers may help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. These blockages might cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the property.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar can crumble and crack leading to critical complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, right chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from upscale repairs. Chimneys can block the correct ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace might spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. Stray sparks will be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney can depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it’s an approved liner for gas and oil. Composite chimney lining system that gets inflated into the chimney flue and steam pressure is added to harden the resin, turning it into hard composite liner. A stainless steel chimney liner locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your home.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. In the tests, it was determined that if the flue gases were allowed to penetrate to the brick and mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. As the mortar joints weather, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide may leak into the living areas of the structure. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform exactly. An haphazardly-sized liner might lead to additional creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our wish is to provide recommendations that might improve the safety and efficiency of your appliance and venting system. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in addition to 1/8 inch could be removed. Our experts employ multiple cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires fixing.

Several of the normal chimney cleaning methods that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method and involves the use of brushes to clean the flue. A powerful, well filtered vacuum is used to prevent soot and creosote from entering the house. This type of cleaning is effective for soot and ordinary creosote deposits but has little effect on glaze deposits.

Mechanical Sweeping. Mechanical cleaning involves the use of wire brushes, plastic cables or special chains rotated at high speed by an electric motor. Mechanical cleaning is often employed to remove hard creosote or glaze deposits. In some cases where it is impossible to clean the flue by standard or mechanical sweeping it’s necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are rarely the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney can remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases could be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen might usually be done in less couple of hours and can make sure your structure does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our masons pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to you.
