Great Chimney Cap Contractors Near Pantigo

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a structure. The fact that chimneys could do their job fittingly, even when overlooked, contributes to this theory 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. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and broken masonry products all present a threat to chimneys.

Improperly lined chimneys might cause a number of pricey structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the homeowner and also create potentially critical safety hazards. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Pantigo, 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 correctly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer might employ to prevent water penetration and leaks to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers might protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our experts will advise you in your own unique situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate call or text Expressway’s chimney experts at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that might prevent some of the most inordinate harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Pantigo’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. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. It is sometimes hard to think how industrious animals and birds will be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all could suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might crumble and crack leading to pivotal damage. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, right chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our technicians can 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 leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from high-priced repairs. Chimneys will block the right ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will 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.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney can depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the best possible for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. 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 property 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 precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. A chimney is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a way out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An shodily-sized liner may lead to excessive creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

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

Expressway: Your Local Pantigo Chimney Maintenance Experts

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

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