The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a home. The fact that chimneys could do their job perfectly, even when damaged, contributes to this idea that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most clients assume them to be. Destructive or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise damaged – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to incorrectly lined chimneys. A lot of masonry chimney materials (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and looks like a brick chimney and it can also be protected from the effects of water penetration. A plethora of masonry products are porous and could absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our masons only send fully-trained chimney cleaning fully-trained techs to your residence 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 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 can prevent some of the most inordinate complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Hewlett’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. Some caps will actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney sweeps could 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 and animals. Even just falling leaves could build up without the right chimney cap in place.

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

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys can block proper ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could 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 might 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. 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 house.

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 3 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 and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside 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 house. Your is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a passage out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. Our obvious role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency could 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 will be removed. Our masons employ various cleaning systems 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 addressed.

Several of the normal chimney cleaning methods 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’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 can remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases will be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney pros can usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your property 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 an owner.
