Pro Chimney Inspection Contractors Near Salisbury

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a residence. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually given other alarming household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most customers assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent issues, deterioration and future dangerous, high-cost chimney repairs.

The issue 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. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Salisbury, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and can be like a brick chimney and it should also be protected from the effects of water penetration. A lot of masonry materials are porous and may absorb large amounts of water. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our experts might advise you in your own special situation what is best for you. 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 could prevent some of the most inordinate damage. 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 materials. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney pros will recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. It is sometimes hard to believe how industrious animals and 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 and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could 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 can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair expenses.

Our pros might 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 begins more harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys might block proper ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could 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 component of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

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. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it’s an approved liner for gas and oil. 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your home.

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 correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform precisely. Our obvious role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our duty 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 in excess of 1/8 inch can be removed. Our masons employ various cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney requires repairs.

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 and creosote from entering the house. 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 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 seldom 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 could 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 appropriate to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen may usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your residence 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 you.
