Professional Chimney Inspection Contractors Near North Massapequa

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a property. The fact that chimneys may do their job fittingly, even when slighted, contributes to this idea of ‘it’s probably fine’. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather might be a potential safety hazard. Damaged or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could become soft, cracked or otherwise problematic – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the dangerous by-products of combustion.

Shodily lined chimneys might cause a number of upscale structural and cosmetic problems for the property owner and also create potentially critical safety hazards. A plethora of masonry chimney materials (except for authentic 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 rightly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a homeowner should employ to prevent water penetration and weakening to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our technicians might advise the owner in your own unique situation what is best for you.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that could prevent some of the most immoderate issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney expert knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Chimney dampers could help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. Even just falling leaves might build up without an appropriate chimney cap in place.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might 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. Of course, correct chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

We will 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 initiates more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys could block proper ventilation and even enter your residence, 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 may 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 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 ideal for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. 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 is air and water tight.

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 structure 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. 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. As the mortar joints wear away, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the structure. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform precisely. An improperly-sized liner can lead to extra creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency can 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 a variety of cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney needs repairs.

Several of the most common 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 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 is impossible to sweep 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 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 material that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney technicians could usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your residence 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 an owner.
