Great Chimney Repair Contractors Near Mattituck

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a structure. The fact that chimneys may do their job perfectly, even when discounted, contributes to this theory of ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most customers assume them to be. Destructive or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise deteriorated – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to erroneously lined chimneys. Quite a bit of masonry chimney products (except for real stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Water in the chimney also causes rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and leak-prevention part. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which could ignite nearby combustibles like your roof shingles, siding or nearby trees.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that could prevent some of the most expensive harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Mattituck’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney mason knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. Some caps may actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney experts can recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. It is sometimes hard to see how dextructive animals and birds could be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. 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 correctly fitted chimney cap or guard could slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our chimney repair and installation craftsmen are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from expensive repairs. Chimneys may block proper ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace may spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks might 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 could 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.

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. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. The 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 imperfectly-sized liner can lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency can 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 in excess of 1/8 inch may be removed. Our pros employ multiple cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires fixing.

Expressway: Your Local Mattituck Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the normal chimney cleaning techniques 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 house. 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 almost never the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney should remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases could be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney sweeps may usually be done in less couple of hours and may 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 a homeowner.
