Highly-skilled Chimney Cap Contractors Near Point Lookout

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a property. The fact that chimneys will do their job fittingly, even when slighted, contributes to this theory that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several imperitive functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Problematic or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise deteriorated – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Inexactly lined chimneys could cause a number of high-priced structural and cosmetic problems for the homeowner and also create potentially essential safety hazards. Expressway repairs complications to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a client wishes for a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. Water in the chimney also starts rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Quite a bit of masonry materials are porous and will absorb large amounts of water. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. 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 consultation call or text us 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 immoderate damage. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney mason knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. In especially windy areas chimneys also could prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. Even just falling leaves can build up without a proper chimney cap in place.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to critical complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, proper chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more complications 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 could block the right ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks could 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. The Thermocrete process coats the inside of the chimney from top to bottom with a highly durable ceramic sealant. 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. It conforms to any shape, size and length of the chimney and become a non-destructive chimney lining system which is corrosion-proof, flame and heat resistant, airtight liner with a rigidity of a steel. 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 structure 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. In the tests, it was determined that if the flue gases were allowed to penetrate to the brick and mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. Liners provide a rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. The 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 improperly-sized liner could lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency could 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 may be removed. Our masons employ numerous 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 replacing.

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 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 is 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 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 might 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 exact to the class of the chimney service.

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