Professional Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Garden City South

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a house. The chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually accorded other alarming 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 loose masonry products all present a threat to houses.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to improperly lined chimneys. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Garden City South, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also initiates 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 property owner can employ to prevent water penetration and harm to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of imperfect mortar or brick can greatly increase the tendency to absorb and steer water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which might ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection call or text Expressway at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that might prevent some of the most pricey complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney expert knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. In especially windy areas chimneys also may prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney technicians may recommend the best solution for your chimney. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. It is sometimes hard to see how dextructive animals and birds can be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all may suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could 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. Of course, correct chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our pros 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 complications than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues can protect you from inordinate repairs. Chimneys will block proper ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace may spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks can 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 may 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 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 property 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. As the mortar joints weather, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the structure. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform correctly. An imperfectly-sized liner might lead to extra creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our aim is to provide recommendations that can 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 more than 1/8 inch can be removed. Our pros employ several cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney needs replacing.

Several of the normal 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 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’s 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 should 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 could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney project.

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