Professional Chimney Cap Contractors Near Northwest Landing

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a property. Your chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually afforded other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather could be a potential safety hazard. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent problems, deterioration and future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

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 Northwest Landing, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also initiates rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a property owner should employ to prevent water penetration and damage to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of incorrect mortar or brick can greatly increase the tendency to absorb and transport water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which could ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. 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 nightmares. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us 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. 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 seldom have a damper. Even just falling leaves may build up without the right chimney cap in place.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to critical damage. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A correctly fitted chimney cap or guard could slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about the many various types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues could protect you from immoderate repairs. Chimneys may block the right ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. Stray sparks can 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 might 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 is 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 home.

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 home 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. Liners provide a properly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a exactly-sized flue to perform properly. Our prominent job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency may depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the property owner. 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 may be removed. Our technicians employ numerous cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of help.

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 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 is 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 should remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases could be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney job.

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