Expert Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Carle Place

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a structure. The fact that chimneys will do their job well, even when omitted, contributes to this notion that ‘it’s probably fine’. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather may be a potential safety hazard. Adverse or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise non-functioning – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the dangerous by-products of combustion.

The complication is that quite a bit of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Quite a bit of masonry chimney products (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and looks like a brick chimney and it could also be protected from the effects of water penetration. A lot of masonry materials are porous and will absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our technicians will advise a homeowner in your own subjective situation what is best for you. 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 upscale leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Carle Place’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney expert 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 structure. Chimney caps also come with spark shields to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney technicians may recommend the best solution for your chimney. This damper attaches to the top of the chimney’s flue tile liner, providing a tight, gasketed fit that seals in heat and seals out weather, insects, birds and animals. It’s sometimes hard to think how industrious animals and birds could be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all might suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could 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 pros are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more problems 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 may block the right ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace could spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks could be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

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. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most beneficial for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. It conforms to any shape, size and length of the chimney and become a non-destructive chimney lining system which is corrosion-proof, flame and heat resistant, airtight liner with a rigidity of a steel. A stainless steel chimney liner is air and water tight.

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 home is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. 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 correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform correctly. An imperfectly-sized liner will lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency will depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the consumer. 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 should be removed. Our masons employ many cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney needs replacing.

Expressway: Your Local Carle Place Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the most common chimney cleaning plans 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’s 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 seldom 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 may be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney technicians could usually be done in less couple of hours and could make sure your home 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 the owner.
