The chimney is one of the most under appreciated things of a property. The chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most people assume them to be. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions & uplifted masonry materials all present a problem to residents.

The issue is that hundreds of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas & oil. Expressway repairs problems to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a client needs a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. A stone chimney acts and seems to be like a brick chimney and it can also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and issue-prevention part. Installing chimney caps & dampers might protect your chimney & maintain a safe chimney damper. We could advise you in your own unique situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation 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 expensive problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading & 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 will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney sweeps can 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 & animals. It’s sometimes hard to see how industrious animals and birds could be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all might suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar can crumble and crack leading to pivotal trouble. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests & leaves from entering the chimney. A precisely fitted chimney cap or guard may slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our technicians could be happy to come out & make a recommendation for you & provide a written estimate to install a new chimney cap, chimney damper or guard on your chimney. Water causes more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks & weathers at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from costly repairs. Chimneys may block the right ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease & wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh & lids might 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 may 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. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the best possible for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. Composite chimney lining system that gets inflated into the chimney flue and steam pressure is added to harden the resin, turning it into hard composite liner. A stainless steel chimney liner locks in moisture & flue gases in your chimney & keeps them out of your property.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue & extreme stresses of hot & 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. The flue gases are acidic in nature & 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 & dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide might leak into the living areas of the home. Modern wood stoves & gas or oil furnaces require a rightly-sized flue to perform precisely. An improperly-sized liner might lead to additional creosote buildup in wood burning stoves & the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our wish is to provide recommendations that can improve the safety and efficiency of your appliance & 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 could be removed. Our experts employ several cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of to be fixed.

Several of the normal chimney cleaning plans that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method & involves the use of brushes to clean the flue. A powerful, well filtered vacuum is used to prevent soot and creosote from entering the house. This type of cleaning is effective for soot & 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 & dissolve heavy creosote & glaze deposits. These cases are almost never the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney can remove all of the soot, creosote & blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber & shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases shall be either removed &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 exact to the class of the chimney job.

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