Professional Chimney Cap Contractors Near Hampton Bays

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a home. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually afforded other damaged household systems. Chimneys perform several pertinent functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent issues, deterioration and future preventible, high-cost chimney fixes.

Shodily lined chimneys will cause a number of immoderate structural and cosmetic worries for the homeowner and also create potentially serious safety hazards. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Hampton Bays, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also begins 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 client may employ to prevent water penetration and weakening to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of imperfect mortar or brick might greatly increase the tendency to absorb and steer water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our technicians could advise you in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate 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 expensive complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney craftsmen knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. In especially windy areas chimneys also might prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney technicians might recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. Even just falling leaves will build up without the latest chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all will suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might crumble and crack leading to pivotal complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, most apt chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

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

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 house is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve three 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 degrade, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can leak into the living areas of the property. 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. An shodily-sized liner might lead to extra creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency will depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the property owner. 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 should be removed. Our masons employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney requires help.

Several of the usual 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 almost never 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 could be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney job.

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