Chimney Caps & Damper Contractors For All LI

Expert Chimney Cap Contractors Near East Marion

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a residence. The chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually accorded other obstructed household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather may be a potential safety hazard. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and loose masonry materials all present a complication to chimneys.

Inexactly lined chimneys might cause a number of expensive structural and cosmetic issues for the customer and also create potentially important safety hazards. Expressway repairs trouble to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether an owner wants a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney problem. Water in the chimney also initiates rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. 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. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which may ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. 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 costly leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call East Marion’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney expert knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. Chimney caps also come with spark vents to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney pros might recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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. Even just falling leaves may build up without an appropriate chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all can 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. Of course, most apt chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

We 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 problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from pricey repairs. Chimneys might block proper ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace could 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 part of all of our chimney caps.

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 beneficial 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.

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. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Your is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a way out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An haphazardly-sized liner could lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our aim is to provide recommendations that can 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 addition to 1/8 inch could be removed. Our pros employ many cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks 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 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 is 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 hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney will remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases can 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 needs two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney sweeps will 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. Our masons pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
