Highly-skilled Chimney Inspection Contractors Near Melville

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a property. The fact that chimneys can do their job fittingly, even when discounted, contributes to this misnomer 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. Destructive 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 scary by-products of combustion.

Imprecisely lined chimneys might cause a number of upscale structural and cosmetic worries for the client and also create potentially imperitive safety hazards. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Melville, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and appears 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 harm-prevention component. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning highly-skilled pros to your home that may 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’s chimney experts at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that could prevent some of the most expensive damage. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney craftsmen knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. Chimney caps also come with spark guards to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Chimney dampers will help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. It is sometimes hard to think how industrious animals and birds can 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 critical problems. 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 can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair fees.

Our technicians can 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 degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues could protect you from high-priced repairs. Chimneys will block the correct 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 will 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 part of all of our chimney caps.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney can 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. Composite chimney lining system that gets inflated into the chimney flue and steam pressure is added to harden the resin, turning it into hard composite liner. A stainless steel chimney liner locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your residence.

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 property is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve 3 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 erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide might leak into the living areas of the home. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform precisely. Our obvious task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

Our goal 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 more than 1/8 inch may be removed. Our experts employ many cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney requires fixing.

Several of the usual 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 residence. 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 is 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 could 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 product that will 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 craftsmen may usually be done in less couple of hours and might make sure your structure does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our masons pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to you.
