Pro Chimney Inspection Contractors Near Mastic Beach

The chimney is one of the most useful things of a house. The fact that chimneys can do their job well, even when forgetten about, contributes to this notion that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most people assume them to be. Damaged or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise damaged – 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 erroneously lined chimneys. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Mastic Beach, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone exactly. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety & damage-prevention component. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals & most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which may ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation 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 can prevent some of the most upscale harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading & call Mastic 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 can prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open & close. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. These blockages can cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

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

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about the many various types of chimney caps, guards & dampers. Water begins more complications than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks & erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues might protect you from high-priced repairs. Chimneys may block the right ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease & wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. Stray sparks could 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. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing & it is an approved liner for gas and oil. 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 & water tight.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot & cold cycles. 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. As the mortar joints weather, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles & dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the structure. 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. An erroneously-sized liner might lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves & the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our wish is to provide recommendations that might improve the safety & 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 could be removed. Our experts employ several cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

Local Mastic Beach Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the usual chimney cleaning techniques that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method & 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 & dissolve heavy creosote & 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 & gases should be either removed andreplaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen may usually be done in less couple of hours and can make sure your residence does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our pros pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to a homeowner.
