Pro Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near East Meadow

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a residence. Your chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other concerning 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 materials all present a problem to houses.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to haphazardly lined chimneys. Expressway repairs complications 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 threat. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone precisely. A lot of masonry products are porous and could absorb large amounts of water. 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 can ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation call or text Expressway 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 pricey issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep 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 craftsmen may 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 could build up without the correct chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all will suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to serious leaks. 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 could slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our pros may 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 starts more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys may block the right ventilation and even enter your property, 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 products. 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 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. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most fitting 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 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. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. 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. The chimney 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. Our prominent job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency may depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the customer. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in excess of 1/8 inch will be removed. Our experts employ multiple cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of help.

Local East Meadow Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the normal chimney cleaning methods 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 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 may 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 exact to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney pros can usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your residence 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.
