Highly-skilled Chimney Inspection Contractors Near Rocky Point

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a residence. The fact that chimneys will do their job perfectly, even when damaged, contributes to this thought that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property owners assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent trouble, deterioration and future troublesome, high-cost chimney fixes.

Shodily lined chimneys might cause a number of high-priced structural and cosmetic issues for the homeowner and also create potentially important safety hazards. Expressway repairs leaks to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the owner wishes for a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney problem. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone rightly. A plethora of masonry products are porous and may absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers could protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our experts could advise an owner in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection 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 might prevent some of the most pricey problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney craftsmen knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. Some caps might actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney craftsmen will recommend the best solution for your chimney. This damper attaches to the top of the chimney’s flue tile liner, providing a tight, gasketed fit that seals in heat and seals out weather, insects, birds and animals. Even just falling leaves may build up without a proper chimney cap in place.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might crumble and crack leading to pivotal 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 may slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our chimney repair and installation experts are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common dilemma , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their property in your chimney. Chimneys might block the right ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace might spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. Stray sparks may 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 may 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. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. 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. As the mortar joints degrade, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide may leak into the living areas of the structure. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a exactly-sized flue to perform properly. An improperly-sized liner could lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our goal 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 more than 1/8 inch can be removed. Our experts employ many cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney needs fixing.

Expressway: Your Local Rocky Point Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the most common chimney cleaning techniques 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’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 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 will 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 pros can usually be done in less couple of hours and might make sure your home 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 a homeowner.
