Highly-skilled Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Lido Beach

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a structure. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually accorded other leaking household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property managers assume them to be. Leaky or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys can become soft, cracked or otherwise broken – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the dangerous by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to shodily lined chimneys. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Lido Beach, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and can be like a brick chimney and it can also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and leak-prevention part. Installing chimney caps and dampers can protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our experts only send fully-trained chimney cleaning highly-skilled pros to your residence that will 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 inspection call or text Expressway 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 inordinate issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Lido Beach’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 might prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers could help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. These blockages may cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all might suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar may crumble and crack leading to pivotal issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A rightly fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair expenses.

We 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 begins more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys might block proper ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace might 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.

Local Chimney Repair & Replacement Contractors

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney may 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 best possible 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 residence is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a exactly-sized flue to perform exactly. An faulty-sized liner might lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency could 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 more than 1/8 inch will be removed. Our masons employ numerous cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney needs replacing.

Local Lido Beach Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the normal chimney cleaning practices 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’s impossible to sweep 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 hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney may 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 material that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney technicians might 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 experts pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to a homeowner.
