Chimney Caps & Damper Contractors For All LI

Highly-skilled Chimney Repair Contractors Near East Northport

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a structure. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually given other concerning household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather will be a potential safety hazard. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent damage, deterioration and future widespread, high-cost chimney repairs.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to incorrectly lined chimneys. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of East Northport, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also begins 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 client may employ to prevent water penetration and trouble to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of incorrect mortar or brick could greatly increase the tendency to absorb and move water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our masons 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 will prevent some of the most high-priced 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 materials. In especially windy areas chimneys also can prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. 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 the right chimney cap in place.

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

Our chimney repair and installation pros are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their property in your chimney. Chimneys could block the correct ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace might 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 can depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. 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.

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. 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 precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform precisely. Our obvious job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

Our mission is to provide recommendations that could 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 might be removed. Our experts employ many cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

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 house. 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 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 can 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 may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney job.

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