Chimney Caps & Damper Contractors For All LI

Professional Chimney Repair Contractors Near North Baldwin

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a residence. The fact that chimneys may do their job well, even when abused, contributes to this aura of ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most customers assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent harm, deterioration and future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

The complication is that hundreds of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Hundreds of masonry chimney products (except for genuine 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 correctly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer might employ to prevent water penetration and damage to the chimney. 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 can 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 might prevent some of the most inordinate problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call North Baldwin’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep 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 house. In especially windy areas chimneys also could prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney masons will recommend the best solution for your chimney. This damper attaches to the top of the chimney’s flue tile liner, providing a tight, gasketed fit that seals in heat and seals out weather, insects, birds and animals. These blockages can cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the house.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all can suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar can 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 precisely fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about the many various types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their structure in your chimney. Chimneys may block the right ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace could 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. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it’s 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your structure.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. 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 properly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform precisely. An haphazardly-sized liner could lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our objective is to provide recommendations that may 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 in excess of 1/8 inch should be removed. Our technicians employ numerous cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of to be fixed.

Several of the usual 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 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 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 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 may 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 job.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen might usually be done in less couple of hours and can make sure your property does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our technicians pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to you.
