Great Chimney Cap Contractors Near Gardener’s Island

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a structure. Your chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually given other worrisome household systems. Chimneys perform several essential functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Destructive or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise leaky – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to improperly lined chimneys. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Gardener’s Island, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and seems to be like a brick chimney and it can also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Lots of masonry products are porous and can absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers could protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. 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 estimate call or text Expressway at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that may prevent some of the most upscale complications. 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. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. Some caps could actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney experts may recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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. It’s sometimes hard to see how industrious animals and birds can be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all will suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to pivotal 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 experts might 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 starts more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. It’s such a common dilemma , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys will block proper ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 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 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. 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 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. 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 wear away, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can leak into the living areas of the home. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a properly-sized flue to perform correctly. Our major role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency may depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the consumer. 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 will be removed. Our pros employ various cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

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 structure. 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 sweep 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 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 material that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney service.

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