Professional Local, Lake Success Chimney Contractors

Highly-skilled Chimney Repair Contractors Near Lake Success

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a structure. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually accorded other leaking household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and broken masonry products all present a threat to homes.

Imprecisely lined chimneys might cause a number of pricey structural and cosmetic issues for the customer and also create potentially pertinent safety hazards. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Lake Success, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and is like a brick chimney and it could also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Quite a bit of masonry products are porous and may absorb large amounts of water. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our masons only send fully-trained chimney cleaning professionals to your property that may live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and the NCSG (National Chimney Sweeps Guild), the two regulatory organizations for the chimney industry in the United States. 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 could prevent some of the most pricey damage. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Lake Success’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney mason knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. In especially windy areas chimneys also could prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers may help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. 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. Even just falling leaves could build up without a proper chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all can suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could 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 properly fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair expenses.

Our masons will 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 initiates more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues could protect you from high-priced repairs. Chimneys may block the correct ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace might 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 may 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 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your home.

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 property is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve three 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. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a properly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. A 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. Our prominent job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our goal is to provide recommendations that might 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 in addition to 1/8 inch can be removed. Our technicians employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney needs repairs.

Local Lake Success 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 structure. 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 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 should 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 proper to the class of the chimney job.

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