Expert Chimney Cap Contractors Near Huntington

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a home. The fact that chimneys may do their job fittingly, even when abused, contributes to this theory of ‘it’s probably fine’. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather may be a potential safety hazard. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent trouble, deterioration and future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

Imprecisely lined chimneys might cause a number of high-priced structural and cosmetic problems for the consumer and also create potentially pivotal safety hazards. A lot of masonry chimney materials (except for genuine stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone properly. Many of masonry materials are porous and will absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which can ignite nearby combustibles like your roof shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation 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 could prevent some of the most costly 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 pro 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 property. Chimney caps also come with spark mesh to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney experts can recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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. Even just falling leaves may 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 serious trouble. 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 can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our pros 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 starts more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys will block the right ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may 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 could be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney might 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 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. 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 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. The chimney 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. An erroneously-sized liner can lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency may 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 can be removed. Our masons employ various cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

Local Huntington Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the most common 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 home. 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’s 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 might 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 correct to the class of the chimney service.

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