Professional Chimney Repair Contractors Near Ronkonkoma

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a residence. The fact that chimneys may do their job perfectly, even when damaged, contributes to this notion that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several imperitive functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and uplifted masonry products all present a problem to chimneys.

The worry is that hundreds of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Ronkonkoma, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials 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 precisely. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer could employ to prevent water penetration and damage to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers could protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our masons might advise you in your own unique situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection call or text Expressway 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 costly trouble. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney pro 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 residence. Some caps could actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Chimney dampers could help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. 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 the correct chimney cap in place.

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

Our experts 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 harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys can block proper ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may 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 can 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. 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your house.

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 home is safer for yourself and your family. 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 properly-sized flue to perform correctly. An imperfectly-sized liner could lead to excessive creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency might depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the homeowner. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch might be removed. Our technicians 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 is in need of help.

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

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen could usually be done in less couple of hours and could 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 the owner.
