Highly-skilled Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Hauppauge

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a structure. The chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other leaking household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most homeowners assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent trouble, deterioration & future expensive, high-cost chimney fixes.

The problem is that quite a bit of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas & oil. Expressway repairs damage to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a client wants a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. Water in the chimney also starts rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and damage-prevention component. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning fully-trained techs to your house that could 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 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 costly nightmares. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading & call Hauppauge’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney pro knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps may actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open & close. 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 and animals. It’s sometimes hard to think how dextructive animals & birds may 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 & crack leading to serious trouble. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain & the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A rightly fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our chimney repair & installation technicians are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards & dampers. Water causes more harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their residence in your chimney. Chimneys will block the right ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh & 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 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 may 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 & it’s an approved liner for gas and oil. Composite chimney lining system that gets inflated into the chimney flue & steam pressure is added to harden the resin, turning it into hard composite liner. A stainless steel chimney liner is air & water tight.

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 home 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. The flue gases are acidic in nature & literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform precisely. Our principal role is to remove flue deposits & evaluate the complete 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 homeowner. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot & creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch can be removed. Our technicians employ many cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires repairs.

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 & 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 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 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 & shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases will be either removed andreplaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that will 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 3 – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen might usually be done in less couple of hours & may make sure your structure does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our experts pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
