Highly-skilled Chimney Cap Contractors Near North Hempstead

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a residence. The fact that chimneys will do their job well, even when ignored, contributes to this aura that ‘it’s probably fine’. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and freed up masonry materials all present a complication to residents.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to erroneously lined chimneys. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of North Hempstead, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and seems to be like a brick chimney and it should also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a property owner will employ to prevent water penetration and issues to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers can protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our technicians only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your residence 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 estimate call or text us 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 costly trouble. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us 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 can prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. Even just falling leaves could build up without a proper chimney cap in place.

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 critical complications. 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 may slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair prices.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more complications than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their residence in your chimney. Chimneys may block proper ventilation and even enter your structure, 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 materials. Stray sparks may be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney will 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. 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. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. 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. 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 properly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform precisely. An shodily-sized liner could lead to extra creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our duty 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 in addition to 1/8 inch should be removed. Our masons employ several cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney requires fixing.

Several of the normal chimney cleaning techniques 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 structure. 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 hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney may 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 may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney sweeps will usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your property does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our pros pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
