Great Chimney Repair Contractors Near Roslyn

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a structure. The chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. Chimneys perform several pertinent functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Leaky or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys can become soft, cracked or otherwise broken – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the dangerous by-products of combustion.

The worry is that a ton of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Expressway repairs damage to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a client wants a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney complication. A stone chimney acts and is like a brick chimney and it could also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and damage-prevention part. Defective mortar joints or the use of shoddy mortar or brick can greatly increase the tendency to absorb and carry water to the interior of the masonry chimney. We can advise the owner in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation 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 inordinate problems. 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. Some caps can actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. Even just falling leaves can build up without the right chimney cap in place.

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

Our chimney repair and installation pros are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from pricey repairs. Chimneys will block proper ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can 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 can 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 might 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 beneficial 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 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. 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. Liners provide a properly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. A 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. An shodily-sized liner could lead to extra creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency can depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the customer. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch may be removed. Our technicians employ numerous cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney requires repairs.

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 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 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 rarely 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 may be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen may usually be done in less couple of hours and might make sure your residence does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our technicians pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to a homeowner.
