Expert Chimney Cap Contractors Near Farmingville

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a residence. The fact that chimneys can do their job well, even when ignored, contributes to this aura that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several critical functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Harmful or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys can become soft, cracked or otherwise problematic – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

Inexactly lined chimneys may cause a number of expensive structural and cosmetic complications for the consumer and also create potentially essential safety hazards. Expressway repairs weakening to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the owner needs 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. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a homeowner could employ to prevent water penetration and leaks to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our technicians only send fully-trained chimney cleaning fully-trained techs to your structure 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.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that might prevent some of the most high-priced leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney pro knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Chimney caps also come with spark shields to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Chimney dampers will help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that seldom have a damper. These blockages could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the home.

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

Our chimney repair and installation craftsmen are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues could protect you from inordinate repairs. Chimneys can block proper 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 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 might 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. 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 property.

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 precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a rightly-sized flue to perform properly. An erroneously-sized liner may lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our goal is to provide recommendations that will 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 excess of 1/8 inch could be removed. Our masons employ numerous cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of repairs.

Expressway: Your Local Farmingville Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the most common chimney cleaning practices 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 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 almost never 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 may be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney job.

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