Pro Chimney Cap Contractors Near Huntington

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a property. The fact that chimneys will do their job well, even when passed over, contributes to this theory that ‘it’s probably fine’. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather will be a potential safety hazard. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent issues, deterioration and future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

Improperly lined chimneys will cause a number of upscale structural and cosmetic issues for the customer and also create potentially pivotal safety hazards. Expressway repairs trouble to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a client 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. A stone chimney acts and seems to be like a brick chimney and it might also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and leak-prevention component. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our masons could advise you in your own unique 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 might prevent some of the most expensive complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Huntington’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. In especially windy areas chimneys also can prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers might help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. It is sometimes hard to believe how industrious animals and birds can be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

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

Our chimney repair and installation experts are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from ritzy repairs. Chimneys will block proper ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could 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 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 can depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most optimal 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 is air and water tight.

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. 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 weather, 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 way out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An erroneously-sized liner will lead to extra creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency can depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the client. 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 experts employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires replacing.

Several of the usual 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 house. 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 clean 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 and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases can be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney sweeps will usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your structure 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 an owner.
