Professional Chimney Cap Contractors Near Manhasset

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a home. The chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually afforded other obstructed household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather might be a potential safety hazard. Adverse or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could 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 improperly lined chimneys. Expressway repairs weakening to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the 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 precisely. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and damage-prevention component. Defective mortar joints or the use of incorrect mortar or brick will greatly increase the tendency to absorb and deliver water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which can ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection 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 might prevent some of the most upscale issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps could actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney sweeps may recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. Even just falling leaves might build up without the right chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all could suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to critical complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A precisely fitted chimney cap or guard will slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair fees.

Our chimney repair and installation pros are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues can protect you from ritzy repairs. Chimneys may block proper ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 might 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 could 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 fitting 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 house.

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. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. 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 correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform properly. An improperly-sized liner might lead to excessive creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

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

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 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’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 hardly ever 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 might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney pros will 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 service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to an owner.
