Great Chimney Cap Contractors Near Port Jefferson

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a property. Your chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard. Troublesome or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise non-functioning – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Inexactly lined chimneys will cause a number of pricey structural and cosmetic issues for the property owner and also create potentially pertinent safety hazards. Expressway repairs trouble 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 problem. A stone chimney acts and is like a brick chimney and it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and damage-prevention component. Installing chimney caps and dampers can protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your property that could live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and 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’s chimney experts 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 complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Port Jefferson’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney mason 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 home. In especially windy areas chimneys also can prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney pros will recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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. These blockages may cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all can suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar may crumble and crack leading to serious damage. 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 masons 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 causes more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys can block the right ventilation and even enter your residence, 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 may be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your house.

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 house 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 properly-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 shodily-sized liner can lead to other 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 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 will be removed. We employ numerous cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney requires help.

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 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 hardly ever 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 should be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney project.

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