Highly-skilled Chimney Repair Contractors Near Gordon Heights

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a residence. The fact that chimneys may do their job perfectly, even when slighted, contributes to this notion that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property owners assume them to be. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and broken masonry materials all present a problem to houses.

Improperly lined chimneys may cause a number of high-priced structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the consumer and also create potentially essential safety hazards. A plethora of masonry chimney products (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Water in the chimney also causes 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 consumer could employ to prevent water penetration and damage to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of imperfect mortar or brick can greatly increase the tendency to absorb and convey 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 could ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. 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 may prevent some of the most inordinate trouble. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney craftsmen 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 will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney experts will recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that seldom have a damper. It is sometimes hard to think how dextructive animals and birds may 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 can crumble and crack leading to pivotal problems. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, appropriate chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about the many various types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from expensive repairs. Chimneys will block the correct ventilation and even enter your residence, 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 might 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. 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 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your residence.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. 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. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform properly. An faulty-sized liner might lead to excessive creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency can depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the customer. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch should be removed. We employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney requires help.

Several of the most common 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 is necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are seldom 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 could be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney service.

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