Professional Chimney Inspection Contractors Near Seaford

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a house. The chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually given other worrisome household systems. Chimneys perform several critical functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Weakened or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys can become soft, cracked or otherwise leaky – 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. Many of masonry chimney materials (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and seems to be like a brick chimney and it should also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Hundreds 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 technicians may advise an owner in your own subjective situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection 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 problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Seaford’s local roofing experts 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. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney masons can recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. Even just falling leaves may build up without the most apt chimney cap in place.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to serious trouble. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A correctly fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

We may 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 trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from upscale repairs. Chimneys could block the correct ventilation and even enter your home, 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 might be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part of all of our chimney caps.

Nearby Seaford Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney could 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 best possible for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. 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. 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. As the mortar joints weather, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide might leak into the living areas of the property. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a rightly-sized flue to perform exactly. Our major task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency could depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the consumer. 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 should be removed. Our masons employ many cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires repairs.

Expressway: Your Local Seaford Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the usual 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 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 hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney could remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases may be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney experts will usually be done in less couple of hours and might make sure your house does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our experts pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to a homeowner.
