Chimney Caps & Damper Contractors For All LI

Highly-skilled Chimney Cap Contractors Near East Massapequa

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a structure. The chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather may be a potential safety hazard. Adverse or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise broken – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

The dilemma is that quite a bit of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of East Massapequa, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also causes rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a property owner could employ to prevent water penetration and complications to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our experts can advise a homeowner in your own special situation what is best for you. 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 can prevent some of the most inordinate issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. In especially windy areas chimneys also might prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. These blockages may cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the property.

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

Our experts 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 causes more complications than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues can protect you from ritzy repairs. Chimneys may block the correct ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 can 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 is an approved liner for gas and oil. 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 is air and water tight.

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 residence is safer for yourself and your family. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. In the NBS tests, unlined chimneys allowed heat to move through the chimney so rapidly that the adjacent woodwork caught fire in only 3 1/2 hours. 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 rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a exactly-sized flue to perform exactly. Our obvious function is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency will depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the consumer. 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 numerous cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of repairs.

Several of the usual 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 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’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 rarely 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 should 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 necessary to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons may usually be done in less couple of hours and could make sure your home 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 the owner.
