Expert Chimney Repair Contractors Near Russell Gardens

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a property. The fact that chimneys can do their job well, even when neglected, contributes to this idea that ‘it’s probably fine’. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather may be a potential safety hazard. Weakened or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise problematic – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the dangerous by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to shodily lined chimneys. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Russell Gardens, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and looks like a brick chimney and it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a property owner should employ to prevent water penetration and harm to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers could 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 may ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. 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 will prevent some of the most expensive complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney 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 property. Chimney caps also come with spark guards to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. 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 will build up without the correct chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all could suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar may 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 properly fitted chimney cap or guard could slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more complications than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from costly repairs. Chimneys can block the correct ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 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 fitting 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 home is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve three 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. As the mortar joints erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide may leak into the living areas of the house. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform correctly. Our prominent task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency will 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 masons employ a variety of cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney requires fixing.

Several of the normal 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 is necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are hardly ever 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 will be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney service.

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