Great Chimney Cap Contractors Near Plandome Heights

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a house. The chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually accorded other obstructed household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most customers assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent trouble, deterioration and future widespread, high-cost chimney repairs.

The issue 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 and oil. Expressway repairs harm to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether an owner needs a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone rightly. A lot of masonry products are porous and could absorb large amounts of water. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. We will advise a homeowner in your own subjective situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that will prevent some of the most high-priced trouble. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney 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 residence. Some caps may actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Chimney dampers could help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. This damper attaches to the top of the chimney’s flue tile liner, providing a tight, gasketed fit that seals in heat and seals out weather, insects, birds and animals. It is sometimes hard to think how industrious animals and birds can 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 could 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, appropriate chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our technicians 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 initiates more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their residence in your chimney. Chimneys can block the correct ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace may spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks can 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. 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 is air and water tight.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. 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 erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide may leak into the living areas of the home. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a rightly-sized flue to perform correctly. Our major job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete 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 customer. 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 pros employ a variety of cleaning systems 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 fixed.

Several of the normal 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 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’s 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 seldom 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 will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney technicians could usually be done in less couple of hours and might 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 a homeowner.
