The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a house. The chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually afforded other leaking household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather may be a potential safety hazard. Problematic or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could become soft, cracked or otherwise problematic – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control & contain the scary by-products of combustion.

The dilemma is that quite a bit of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas & oil. Hundreds of masonry chimney products (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone precisely. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety & damage-prevention component. Installing chimney caps & dampers might protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which might ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. 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 may prevent some of the most immoderate nightmares. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us 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. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers may help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm & saving you money. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that seldom have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to believe how industrious animals & birds will be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace & flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to serious issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain & the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, most apt chimney cleaning & maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation craftsmen are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards & dampers. Water causes more complications 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 structure in your chimney. Chimneys could block the right ventilation & even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh & lids may keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace could 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.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney can 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 & it is an approved liner for gas & oil. It conforms to any shape, size & length of the chimney & 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.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue & 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. 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 erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide might leak into the living areas of the property. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a rightly-sized flue to perform exactly. An haphazardly-sized liner might lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves & the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our wish 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 & creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in addition to 1/8 inch should be removed. We employ various cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs to be fixed.

Several of the usual chimney cleaning practices 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 & creosote from entering the property. This type of cleaning is effective for soot & 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 sweep the flue by standard or mechanical sweeping it’s necessary to use chemicals that help loosen & dissolve heavy creosote & 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 & shelf, firebox & damper. Heat, moisture, creosote & gases might be either removed &replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney project.

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