Great Chimney Cap Contractors Near Old Brookville

The chimney is one of the most under appreciated elements of a property. The fact that chimneys may do their job perfectly, even when passed over, contributes to this misnomer that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most people assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent weakening, deterioration & future widespread, high-cost chimney repairs.

The worry is that quite a bit of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas & oil. A plethora of masonry chimney products (except for genuine stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Water in the chimney also begins 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 could employ to prevent water penetration and harm 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 experts to your house that may live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) & 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 Expressway 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 immoderate trouble. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Old Brookville’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney expert knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps might actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney pros could recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. Even just falling leaves might build up without the latest chimney cap in place.

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

Our masons can be happy to come out & 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 problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks & weathers at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds & bats try to make their residence in your chimney. Chimneys will block the correct ventilation & even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh & lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can 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 part of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney can 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 & it’s an approved liner for gas and oil. Composite chimney lining system that gets inflated into the chimney flue & steam pressure is added to harden the resin, turning it into hard composite liner. A stainless steel chimney liner locks in moisture & flue gases in your chimney & keeps them out of your structure.

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 residence is safer for yourself & your family. 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. In the tests, it was determined that if the flue gases were allowed to penetrate to the brick & mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. Liners provide a correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. A chimney is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a passage out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. Our principal role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency will depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel & 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 excess of 1/8 inch may be removed. Our masons employ various cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney requires replacing.

Local Old Brookville Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the usual chimney cleaning methods that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method & involves the use of brushes to clean the flue. A powerful, well filtered vacuum is used to prevent soot and creosote from entering the residence. This type of cleaning is effective for soot & 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 is necessary to use chemicals that help loosen & dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are rarely 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 & damper. Heat, moisture, creosote & gases can be either removed andreplaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney experts could usually be done in less couple of hours and can make sure your property 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.
