Great Chimney Inspection Contractors Near East Islip

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a house. The fact that chimneys could do their job perfectly, even when omitted, contributes to this thought that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most customers assume them to be. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and uplifted masonry materials all present a threat to residents.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to imperfectly lined chimneys. Lots of masonry chimney products (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and can be like a brick chimney and it could also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a customer will employ to prevent water penetration and weakening to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers could protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning highly-skilled pros to your home that may 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 estimate 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 could prevent some of the most costly problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call East Islip’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps may actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. 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. Even just falling leaves can build up without the latest chimney cap in place.

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

Our chimney repair and installation craftsmen are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more complications than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their property in your chimney. Chimneys might block the right ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. 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 will 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’s 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 locks in moisture and 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 property is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. In the tests, it was determined that if the flue gases were allowed to penetrate to the brick and mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of 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 exactly. An improperly-sized liner may lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency might 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 could be removed. Our experts employ many cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney needs 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 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 is impossible to sweep 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 could 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 correct to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney pros will usually be done in less couple of hours and could make sure your property does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our technicians pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
