Great Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Bayville

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a structure. The fact that chimneys will do their job well, even when omitted, contributes to this theory that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several pivotal functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent complications, deterioration and future dangerous, high-cost chimney fixes.

Improperly lined chimneys may cause a number of immoderate structural and cosmetic worries for the property owner and also create potentially important safety hazards. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Bayville, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also initiates rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer should employ to prevent water penetration and trouble to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers could protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. We only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your structure that can live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and the NCSG (National Chimney Sweeps Guild), the two regulatory organizations for the chimney industry in the United States. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate 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 costly damage. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney pro knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. These blockages may cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all could suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to critical issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, correct chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation pros are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from expensive repairs. Chimneys will block proper ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can 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 may 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. The Thermocrete process coats the inside of the chimney from top to bottom with a highly durable ceramic sealant. 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 is air and water tight.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. In the NBS tests, unlined chimneys allowed heat to move through the chimney so rapidly that the adjacent woodwork caught fire in only 3 1/2 hours. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a properly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. A chimney is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a way out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An erroneously-sized liner will lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our wish is to provide recommendations that can 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 excess of 1/8 inch could be removed. Our experts employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs to be addressed.

Several of the usual chimney cleaning practices 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 residence. 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 sweep the flue by standard or mechanical sweeping it is necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney may remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases will be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney service.

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