Expert Chimney Inspection Contractors Near North Bellmore

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a structure. The fact that chimneys may do their job perfectly, 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 customers assume them to be. Destructive or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will 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.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to shodily lined chimneys. Hundreds of masonry chimney products (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Water in the chimney also starts rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. A lot of masonry materials are porous and can absorb large amounts of water. Defective mortar joints or the use of unsound mortar or brick can greatly increase the tendency to absorb and pass water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning professionals to your property 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.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that may prevent some of the most expensive nightmares. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney pro knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Chimney dampers might help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that seldom have a damper. These blockages will cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the house.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to pivotal complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, appropriate chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our masons 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 causes more harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common dilemma , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys could block the correct ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could 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 component of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

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 and it’s an approved liner for gas and oil. 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. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. 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 can leak into the living areas of the property. A 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 prominent role 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 homeowner. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in addition to 1/8 inch will be removed. Our experts employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of repairs.

Several of the usual chimney cleaning methods 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 clean 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 might remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases should 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 job.

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