The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a house. The fact that chimneys may do their job perfectly, even when neglected, contributes to this idea that ‘it’s probably fine’. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather may be a potential safety hazard. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and broken masonry products all present a problem to houses.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to improperly lined chimneys. Hundreds of masonry chimney products (except for genuine 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 properly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a customer will employ to prevent water penetration and damage to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our technicians only send fully-trained chimney cleaning professionals to your house that can 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 consultation call or text Expressway’s chimney experts 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 immoderate nightmares. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney craftsmen knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers may help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. 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 is sometimes hard to see how industrious animals and birds can 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 critical complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, latest chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their property in your chimney. Chimneys will block the right ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks might be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

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 ideal 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your residence.

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 three 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 can leak into the living areas of the home. 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. Our prominent role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our goal 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 more than 1/8 inch should be removed. Our masons employ many cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of help.

Several of the most common chimney cleaning techniques 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 structure. 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 hardly ever 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 product that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney job.

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