Pro Chimney Cap Contractors Near North Babylon

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a home. The fact that chimneys can do their job well, even when overlooked, contributes to this notion that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several essential functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and loose masonry materials all present a problem to houses.

Inexactly lined chimneys may cause a number of upscale structural and cosmetic problems for the customer and also create potentially pertinent safety hazards. Lots of masonry chimney products (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 properly. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and issue-prevention part. Defective mortar joints or the use of faulty mortar or brick can greatly increase the tendency to absorb and steer water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our experts only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your house 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 inspection call or text us 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 high-priced harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney pro knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. The job of the chimney cap is to stop rain from entering the flue and to stop pests from building nests in your chimney or using the chimney for a doorway into your structure. Chimney caps also come with spark mesh to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney technicians can 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 will build up without the most apt chimney cap in place.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar can crumble and crack leading to serious leaks. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A properly fitted chimney cap or guard might slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair fees.

Our masons might 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 starts more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues might protect you from upscale repairs. Chimneys could block the correct ventilation and even enter your property, 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 can be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney may 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 beneficial 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 home.

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. 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 precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. The chimney is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a way out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. Our principal task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency could depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the property owner. 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 should be removed. Our experts employ numerous cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney requires to be fixed.

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 is 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 rarely 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 and gases shall be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney service.

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