Professional Chimney Repair Contractors Near Selden

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a residence. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually accorded other leaking household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard. Regular chimney maintenance is paramount to prevent damage, deterioration and future widespread, high-cost chimney fixes.

Incorrectly lined chimneys can cause a number of expensive structural and cosmetic worries for the property owner and also create potentially important safety hazards. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Selden, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and is like a brick chimney and it might also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and leak-prevention part. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our technicians could advise you in your own subjective 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 might prevent some of the most expensive harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Selden’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney mason 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 residence. In especially windy areas chimneys also could prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers will help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. 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 home.

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 serious problems. 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 will slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair expenses.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common dilemma , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their structure in your chimney. Chimneys might block the correct ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace might spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks can be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

Nearby Selden Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

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 structure.

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 erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide might leak into the living areas of the structure. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform properly. Our major function is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency will 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 excess of 1/8 inch could be removed. Our masons employ several cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of replacing.

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 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 rarely the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney should remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases will be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product 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 visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney experts 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 job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to you.
