Highly-skilled Chimney Repair Contractors Near Port Jefferson Station

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a house. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other worrisome household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather will be a potential safety hazard. Leaky or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will 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.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to imperfectly lined chimneys. Many of masonry chimney materials (except for real stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and appears like a brick chimney and it should also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Hundreds 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. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your house that will 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 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 expensive issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney mason 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 vents 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’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to believe how dextructive animals and birds might 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 can crumble and crack leading to critical leaks. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A properly fitted chimney cap or guard could slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys may block the right ventilation and even enter your home, 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 materials. Stray sparks will 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. The Thermocrete process coats the inside of the chimney from top to bottom with a highly durable ceramic sealant. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it’s an approved liner for gas and oil. 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 home is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. 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. 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 house. 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. Our major role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency can depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the homeowner. 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 can be removed. Our pros employ a variety of cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney requires repairs.

Several of the most common 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 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 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 may remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases can be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that can 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 pros might usually be done in less couple of hours and can make sure your residence does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our pros pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to an owner.
