Pro Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Indian Landing

The chimney is one of the most useful parts of a home. The fact that chimneys may do their job well, even when omitted, contributes to this aura that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property owners assume them to be. Harmful or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise deteriorated – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control & contain the scary by-products of combustion.

Haphazardly lined chimneys can cause a number of immoderate structural & cosmetic complications for the property owner & also create potentially essential safety hazards. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Indian Landing, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes & expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also causes rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety & damage-prevention part. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Caps & dampers keep out the weather, all animals & most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which might ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate 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 pricey harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney craftsmen knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Chimney caps also come with spark mesh to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Chimney dampers can help prevent water penetrations, heat loss & keep you warm and saving you money. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to see how industrious animals and birds may be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace & flue. Chimney liner tiles & 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 correctly fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair fees.

Our experts might be happy to come out & make a recommendation for you & provide a written estimate to install a new chimney cap, chimney damper or guard on your chimney. Water starts more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common dilemma , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their structure in your chimney. Chimneys can block the right ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh & lids might 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 can be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part of all of our chimney caps.

Nearby Indian Landing Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

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. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing & it’s an approved liner for gas & oil. It conforms to any shape, size & 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 & keeps them out of your property.

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 residence is safer for yourself & your family. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. 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 & mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. Liners provide a rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. A chimney 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 could lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our duty is to provide recommendations that will improve the safety & efficiency of your appliance & venting system. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot & creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in addition to 1/8 inch will be removed. Our pros employ various cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney needs fixing.

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 & 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’s impossible to clean the flue by standard or mechanical sweeping it’s necessary to use chemicals that help loosen & dissolve heavy creosote & glaze deposits. These cases are seldom the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney should remove all of the soot, creosote & blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox & damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases shall be either removed andreplaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney technicians may 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 job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
