Expert Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near North Fork

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a property. The chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually given other leaking household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather may be a potential safety hazard. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and uplifted masonry materials all present a complication to houses.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to incorrectly lined chimneys. Hundreds of masonry chimney products (except for real stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and appears like a brick chimney and it could also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a homeowner might employ to prevent water penetration and damage to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. We only send fully-trained chimney cleaning fully-trained techs to your property that will 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 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 costly leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. Some caps might actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney sweeps can recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. These blockages could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the property.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all will suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to serious 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 experts may 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 damage 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 structure in your chimney. Chimneys can block the right ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks could be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

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. 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 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. 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 precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a properly-sized flue to perform correctly. An incorrectly-sized liner will lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our mission is to provide recommendations that might 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 might be removed. Our technicians employ many cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of replacing.

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 property. 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 almost never the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney will remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases can be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney experts may usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your structure 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 you.
