Great Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Sea Cliff

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

Improperly lined chimneys will cause a number of immoderate structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the client and also create potentially pertinent safety hazards. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Sea Cliff, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also initiates rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Many of masonry materials are porous and might absorb large amounts of water. Defective mortar joints or the use of incorrect mortar or brick could greatly increase the tendency to absorb and steer water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which might ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection 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 expensive issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Sea Cliff’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney expert knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. 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. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. Even just falling leaves may build up without the correct chimney cap in place.

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 pivotal leaks. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, most apt chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our technicians can 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 initiates more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their property in your chimney. Chimneys could block the correct ventilation and even enter your residence, 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 part of all of our chimney caps.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney will depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it is 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 is air and water tight.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. In the NBS tests, unlined chimneys allowed heat to move through the chimney so rapidly that the adjacent woodwork caught fire in only 3 1/2 hours. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. As the mortar joints degrade, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can leak into the living areas of the residence. 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. Our principal role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency might depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the client. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in addition to 1/8 inch will be removed. Our technicians employ various cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney requires to be fixed.

Local Sea Cliff Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

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 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’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 may remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases can 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 correct to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney experts may 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 experts pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to a homeowner.
