Great Chimney Repair Contractors Near Quogue

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a property. The fact that chimneys can do their job fittingly, even when damaged, contributes to this aura that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several critical functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent complications, deterioration and future troublesome, high-cost chimney repairs.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to shodily lined chimneys. Lots of masonry chimney materials (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Water in the chimney also starts rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and harm-prevention part. Defective mortar joints or the use of shoddy mortar or brick can greatly increase the tendency to absorb and convey water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our masons can advise you in your own unique situation what is best for you. 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 can prevent some of the most high-priced problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Quogue’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 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 is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. Even just falling leaves may build up without the latest chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all will suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar may crumble and crack leading to serious complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A correctly fitted chimney cap or guard may slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair fees.

We will 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 harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues might protect you from pricey repairs. Chimneys could block the right ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 might be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part 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. 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. 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 correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform exactly. An imperfectly-sized liner might lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our mission is to provide recommendations that will improve the safety and efficiency of your appliance and venting system. 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 could be removed. Our technicians employ a variety of cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs to be addressed.

Several of the normal chimney cleaning methods 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 sweep 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 rarely the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney will remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases may be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney project.

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