Great Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Oyster Bay Cove

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a structure. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather might be a potential safety hazard. Leaky or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise damaged – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to improperly lined chimneys. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Oyster Bay Cove, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone exactly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a client could employ to prevent water penetration and issues to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers will protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which may ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation call or text Expressway at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that may 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 craftsmen 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 might prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers could help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. Even just falling leaves could build up without the correct chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all could suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to serious issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, latest 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 leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues might protect you from ritzy repairs. Chimneys may block proper ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can 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 will 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 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 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 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 home is safer for yourself and your family. 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. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. As the mortar joints degrade, 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 properly. Our obvious function is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency might depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the client. 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 could be removed. Our pros employ many cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of to be addressed.

Local Oyster Bay Cove Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the normal chimney cleaning methods 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 residence. 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’s necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are rarely 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 may be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney project.

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