Professional Chimney Repair Contractors Near Indian Landing

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a home. Your chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually accorded other worrisome household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most people assume them to be. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and loose masonry materials all present a complication to houses.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to incorrectly lined chimneys. Expressway repairs damage to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether an 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 problem. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone correctly. Hundreds of masonry materials are porous and might 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 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 will prevent some of the most pricey leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us 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 property. Chimney caps also come with spark vents to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. 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 property.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar may crumble and crack leading to critical damage. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, appropriate chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys will block the right ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might 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 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 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 beneficial 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.

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. 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. Liners provide a precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform correctly. Our obvious task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency may depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the customer. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch will be removed. Our pros employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

Local Indian Landing Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the normal 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 residence. 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 and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are seldom 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 might be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that may 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 craftsmen may usually be done in less couple of hours and could make sure your structure does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our experts pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
