Professional Chimney Cap Contractors Near Remsenburg-Speonk

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a home. The fact that chimneys could do their job fittingly, even when overlooked, contributes to this idea of ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most property managers assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent problems, deterioration and future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

Improperly lined chimneys may cause a number of costly structural and cosmetic complications for the client and also create potentially pivotal safety hazards. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Remsenburg-Speonk, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone properly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a property owner can employ to prevent water penetration and issues to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of faulty mortar or brick might greatly increase the tendency to absorb and steer water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our technicians might advise an owner in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate call or text Expressway 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 pricey damage. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney technician 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 structure. Chimney caps also come with spark guards to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney sweeps can recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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. These blockages can cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the house.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all can suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to critical problems. 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.

We 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 starts more harm 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 inordinate repairs. Chimneys might block proper 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 can 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 component of all of our chimney caps.

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. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most optimal 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your structure.

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 property 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. 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 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.

The required cleaning frequency could depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the property owner. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch should be removed. Our masons employ various 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.

Local Remsenburg-Speonk Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the usual 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 house. 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 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 almost never 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 can 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 correct to the class of the chimney job.

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