Professional Chimney Repair Contractors Near Shinnecock Hills

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a house. The fact that chimneys could do their job fittingly, even when neglected, contributes to this notion that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several important functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Troublesome or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise broken – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

The issue is that hundreds of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. A plethora of masonry chimney products (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. 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 client will employ to prevent water penetration and trouble to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our masons only send fully-trained chimney cleaning fully-trained techs to your structure that might live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and the NCSG (National Chimney Sweeps Guild), the two regulatory organizations for the chimney industry in the United States. 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 upscale complications. 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 property. In especially windy areas chimneys also might prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that seldom have a damper. Even just falling leaves may build up without the latest 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 serious damage. 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 prices.

Our experts could 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 harm 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 may block proper ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace may spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks might be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

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 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your structure.

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 residence 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. As the mortar joints weather, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide may leak into the living areas of the home. Your 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 will lead to additional creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

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 in excess of 1/8 inch should be removed. Our masons employ many cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires to be addressed.

Local Shinnecock Hills Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

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 house. 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 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 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 will 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 proper to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney technicians might usually be done in less couple of hours and might make sure your home 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 you.
