Chimney Caps & Damper Contractors For All LI

Highly-skilled Chimney Cap Contractors Near Commack

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

The worry is that hundreds of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Expressway repairs problems to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the owner needs a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney complication. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone correctly. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and harm-prevention part. Installing chimney caps and dampers can protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our technicians may advise a homeowner in your own unique situation what is best for you.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that can prevent some of the most expensive harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Commack’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney pro 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. Some caps could actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney experts can recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. Even just falling leaves might build up without a proper chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all might suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar may crumble and crack leading to pivotal issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A precisely fitted chimney cap or guard might slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair prices.

Our technicians could be happy to come out and make a recommendation for you and provide a written estimate to install a new chimney cap, chimney damper or guard on your chimney. Water starts more leaks 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 costly repairs. Chimneys might block the correct ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks will 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 could 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 is 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. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. As the mortar joints degrade, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide may leak into the living areas of the home. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a exactly-sized flue to perform properly. An erroneously-sized liner may lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our objective is to provide recommendations that will 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 can be removed. Our masons employ several 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 to be addressed.

Several of the usual 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 home. 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 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 seldom the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney could remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases shall be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney technicians may usually be done in less couple of hours and could 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 an owner.
