The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a structure. The chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually accorded other obstructed household systems. Chimneys perform several important functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and freed up masonry products all present a threat to buildings.

The problem 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 a homeowner wants 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 complication-prevention component. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. We might advise a homeowner in your own special situation what is best for you.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that may prevent some of the most pricey harm. 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 products. Some caps will actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney technicians may recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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. It’s sometimes hard to think how dextructive animals and birds could be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to serious issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, appropriate chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our technicians might 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 initiates more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues could protect you from immoderate repairs. Chimneys could block proper ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could 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 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 might depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most optimal for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. 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.

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. Liners provide a precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform properly. An erroneously-sized liner can lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency may depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the homeowner. 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 might be removed. Our technicians employ various cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires help.

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 property. 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 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 almost never 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 appropriate to the class of the chimney project.

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