Pro Chimney Repair Contractors Near Greenwood Village

The chimney is one of the most under appreciated components of a home. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually given other obstructed household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most people assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent problems, deterioration & future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

Improperly lined chimneys may cause a number of upscale structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the homeowner and also create potentially serious safety hazards. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Greenwood Village, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes & expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and can be like a brick chimney & it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer could employ to prevent water penetration and problems to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your property that can live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and the NCSG (National Chimney Sweeps Guild), the two regulatory organizations for the chimney industry in the United States. 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 might prevent some of the most pricey nightmares. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Greenwood Village’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney mason knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Chimney dampers may help prevent water penetrations, heat loss & keep you warm & saving you money. This damper attaches to the top of the chimney’s flue tile liner, providing a tight, gasketed fit that seals in heat & seals out weather, insects, birds & animals. It’s sometimes hard to think how industrious animals & birds can be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Rain is moisture & moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles & mortar can crumble and crack leading to pivotal issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A correctly fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney & lining, potentially saving you from large repair prices.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues could protect you from high-priced repairs. Chimneys can block proper ventilation & even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh & 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 will 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 is an approved liner for gas and oil. 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 is air & water tight.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue & extreme stresses of hot & cold cycles. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. 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. As the mortar joints wear away, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles & dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the structure. Modern wood stoves & gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform precisely. Our main task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our mission is to provide recommendations that could 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 might be removed. Our masons employ many cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney requires help.

Several of the most common chimney cleaning practices 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 home. 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 is necessary to use chemicals that help loosen & dissolve heavy creosote & glaze deposits. These cases are rarely the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney will remove all of the soot, creosote & blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote & gases shall be either removed andreplaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney technicians will usually be done in less couple of hours & might make sure your house does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our pros pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to an owner.
