Chimney Caps & Damper Contractors For All LI

Professional Chimney Repair Contractors Near Sands Point

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a property. The fact that chimneys could do their job fittingly, even when neglected, contributes to this aura that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several important functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Leaky or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could 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 imperfectly lined chimneys. Expressway repairs leaks to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether an owner wants a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone properly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer could employ to prevent water penetration and issues to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. 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 consultation call or text us 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 high-priced problems. 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. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. In especially windy areas chimneys also may prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. These blockages can cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all could suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might crumble and crack leading to pivotal trouble. 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 fees.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues might protect you from expensive repairs. Chimneys might block proper ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 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. 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.

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

Our goal is to provide recommendations that can 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 should be removed. Our technicians employ multiple cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of replacing.

Expressway: Your Local Sands Point Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the most common chimney cleaning plans 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’s 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 might remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases shall 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 exact to the class of the chimney job.

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