Great Chimney Cap Contractors Near Bridgehampton

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a property. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most clients assume them to be. Destructive or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could become soft, cracked or otherwise damaged – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to improperly lined chimneys. Quite a bit of masonry chimney products (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone precisely. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a customer might employ to prevent water penetration and leaks to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which could ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection call or text Expressway at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that could prevent some of the most immoderate complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Bridgehampton’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Chimney caps also come with spark mesh to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney pros will recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to believe how dextructive animals and birds may be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

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

Our chimney repair and installation craftsmen are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys may block the correct 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 will 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 part of all of our chimney caps.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney may 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.

Stainless steel liners have been UL Tested under the most extreme conditions including multiple simulated chimney fires exceeding 2100F so you’ll sleep soundly at night knowing that your house is safer for yourself and your family. 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 rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Your is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a passage out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An imperfectly-sized liner could lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our objective 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 addition to 1/8 inch may be removed. Our technicians employ many cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

Several of the normal 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’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 might 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 material that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons can usually be done in less couple of hours and will make sure your structure does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our technicians pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to an owner.
