The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a property. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually given other worrisome household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most clients assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent harm, deterioration and future dangerous, high-cost chimney repairs.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to shodily lined chimneys. Expressway repairs leaks to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the owner wishes for 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 initiates rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and harm-prevention part. Defective mortar joints or the use of shoddy mortar or brick will greatly increase the tendency to absorb and carry water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our experts can advise an owner in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that could prevent some of the most upscale leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney 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 structure. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. 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. These blockages could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the home.

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

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their residence in your chimney. Chimneys can block proper ventilation and even enter your house, 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 materials. 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 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’s 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your structure.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. 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. 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 erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can leak into the living areas of the residence. Your 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 haphazardly-sized liner could lead to excessive creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our objective is to provide recommendations that will improve the safety and efficiency of your appliance and venting system. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch might be removed. Our experts employ multiple cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs to be addressed.

Several of the normal chimney cleaning techniques 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 rarely 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 may be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons may usually be done in less couple of hours and could make sure your residence does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our pros pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to you.
