The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a home. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other alarming household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most clients assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent problems, deterioration and future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

Haphazardly lined chimneys may cause a number of expensive structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the homeowner and also create potentially pertinent safety hazards. Expressway repairs weakening to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether an owner wishes for 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 have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and leak-prevention component. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. We might advise the owner in your own subjective situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that may prevent some of the most expensive leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney expert 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 house. Chimney caps also come with spark guards to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney sweeps may recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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. These blockages can cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the structure.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might crumble and crack leading to serious leaks. 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 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.

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 can spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks could be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney may depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the best possible 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. 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. A chimney is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a way out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An erroneously-sized liner might lead to new creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our aim is to provide recommendations that might 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 will be removed. Our experts employ a variety of cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of to be addressed.

Expressway: Your Local Sayville Chimney Maintenance Experts

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 residence. 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’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 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 material that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney job.

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