Great Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Remsenburg

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 leaking household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property owners assume them to be. Weakened or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could become soft, cracked or otherwise leaky – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

Incorrectly lined chimneys may cause a number of ritzy structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the property owner and also create potentially imperitive 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 threat. A stone chimney acts and is like a brick chimney and it might also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and problem-prevention part. Installing chimney caps and dampers can protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. We only send fully-trained chimney cleaning highly-skilled pros to your home that might 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 consultation 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 can prevent some of the most expensive complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney pro knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. Chimney caps also come with spark shields to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney masons can recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to believe how industrious 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 will crumble and crack leading to serious leaks. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A rightly fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair fees.

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 causes more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from expensive repairs. Chimneys could block the right 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 will 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 will 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 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 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. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. 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 property. Your is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a passage out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. Our principal role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our goal is to provide recommendations that could 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 more than 1/8 inch could be removed. Our masons employ a variety of cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney needs to be addressed.

Several of the usual 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’s 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 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 will be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney experts may usually be done in less couple of hours and might make sure your house 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 the owner.
