Great Chimney Cap Contractors Near Greenvale

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a property. Your chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually afforded other leaking household systems. Chimneys perform several essential functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Harmful or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise non-functioning – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to haphazardly lined chimneys. Expressway repairs trouble to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether an owner needs a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone correctly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a client may employ to prevent water penetration and issues to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers can protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our experts could advise a homeowner 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 will prevent some of the most immoderate problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Greenvale’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney mason knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. The job of the chimney cap is to stop rain from entering the flue and to stop pests from building nests in your chimney or using the chimney for a doorway into your residence. Chimney caps also come with spark mesh to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney craftsmen will recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. Even just falling leaves may build up without the right chimney cap in place.

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 critical complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A properly fitted chimney cap or guard could slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair expenses.

Our pros will 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 harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys could block the correct ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks might 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 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 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 property.

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 structure is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. 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. In the tests, it was determined that if the flue gases were allowed to penetrate to the brick and mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. Liners provide a precisely-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. Our principal job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency will 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 could be removed. Our experts employ a variety of cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs to be fixed.

Several of the normal chimney cleaning plans 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 is impossible to sweep 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 hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney may remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases shall be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney project.

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