Professional Chimney Cap Contractors Near Centre Island

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a residence. The chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually accorded other worrisome household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather will be a potential safety hazard. Leaky or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise non-functioning – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Incorrectly lined chimneys will cause a number of expensive structural & cosmetic issues for the customer & also create potentially critical safety hazards. Lots of masonry chimney materials (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts & can be like a brick chimney & it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Many of masonry products are porous and can absorb large amounts of water. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water & wicking moisture to the chimney interior. We only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your home that could 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 inspection 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 harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading & call us for an estimate now! Every chimney craftsmen knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes & products. In especially windy areas chimneys also may prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers could help prevent water penetrations, heat loss & keep you warm and saving you money. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to see how dextructive animals & birds might be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

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

Our chimney repair & installation masons are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards & dampers. Water begins more trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks & erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues can protect you from costly repairs. Chimneys may block the right ventilation & even enter your home, potentially spreading disease & wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might 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.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney may 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 fitting for your fireplace chimney & in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. It conforms to any shape, size & length of the chimney & become a non-destructive chimney lining system which is corrosion-proof, flame & heat resistant, airtight liner with a rigidity of a steel. A stainless steel chimney liner locks in moisture & flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your residence.

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 structure is safer for yourself & 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 & literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves & gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform properly. An imperfectly-sized liner might lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency could depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel & the burning habits of the consumer. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot & creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in addition to 1/8 inch can be removed. Our masons employ multiple cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney requires help.

Several of the most common 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 home. This type of cleaning is effective for soot & 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 sweep the flue by standard or mechanical sweeping it’s necessary to use chemicals that help loosen & 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 & gases could be either removed &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 proper to the class of the chimney project.

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