Chimney Caps & Damper Contractors For All LI

Highly-skilled Chimney Cap Contractors Near Fort Salonga

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a house. The fact that chimneys can do their job fittingly, even when neglected, contributes to this notion that ‘it’s probably fine’. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather might be a potential safety hazard. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and displaced masonry products all present a problem to chimneys.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to shodily lined chimneys. Lots of masonry chimney materials (except for genuine stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and looks like a brick chimney and it should also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer may employ to prevent water penetration and trouble to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of unsound mortar or brick can greatly increase the tendency to absorb and pass water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our pros can advise an owner in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection 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 expensive issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney mason knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps may actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney pros could recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that seldom have a damper. These blockages will cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the home.

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

Our technicians can 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 initiates more trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from high-priced repairs. Chimneys could block proper ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will 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. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most beneficial 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.

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. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. A 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. An imperfectly-sized liner may lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency might depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the client. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch may be removed. Our experts employ various cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires replacing.

Expressway: Your Local Fort Salonga Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the usual chimney cleaning techniques 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 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 rarely 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 will be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney project.

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