Expert Chimney Inspection Contractors Near Flower Hill

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a structure. The chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually accorded other worrisome household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most clients assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent damage, deterioration and future expensive, high-cost chimney fixes.

The complication is that hundreds of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. A lot of masonry chimney materials (except for real stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and appears like a brick chimney and it might also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a homeowner might employ to prevent water penetration and weakening to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our experts can advise you in your own unique situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate call or text us 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 costly damage. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Flower Hill’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps could actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Chimney dampers can 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 rarely have a damper. It is sometimes hard to believe how dextructive animals and birds could be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might crumble and crack leading to serious complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, latest chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their structure in your chimney. Chimneys might block proper ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks could 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 could 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 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 correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a properly-sized flue to perform exactly. Our prominent role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our goal is to provide recommendations that might 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 should be removed. We employ a variety of cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires help.

Several of the most common 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 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’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 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 will be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney experts could usually be done in less couple of hours and will make sure your house 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 a homeowner.
