Great Chimney Cap Contractors Near Lloyd Harbor

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a home. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually afforded other worrisome household systems. Chimneys perform several important functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and freed up masonry materials all present a complication to residents.

Incorrectly lined chimneys might cause a number of pricey structural and cosmetic complications for the property owner and also create potentially essential safety hazards. Many of masonry chimney materials (except for real 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 precisely. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a customer can employ to prevent water penetration and leaks to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your home that can 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 consultation call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that might prevent some of the most pricey leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney technician 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 can 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 hardly ever have a damper. It is sometimes hard to think how dextructive animals and birds will be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all can suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar can 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. Of course, appropriate chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation pros are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys could block the right ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 will be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component 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 ideal 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 residence.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. 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 and mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. Liners provide a properly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform properly. An haphazardly-sized liner might lead to additional creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our objective is to provide recommendations that can 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 excess of 1/8 inch can be removed. Our pros employ several cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney needs to be addressed.

Local Lloyd Harbor 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’s 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 rarely the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney will remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases will be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen might usually be done in less couple of hours and will make sure your house 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.
