Highly-skilled Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Shoreham

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a residence. The fact that chimneys will do their job well, even when forgetten about, contributes to this theory that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several pertinent functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Weakened or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could become soft, cracked or otherwise broken – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Haphazardly lined chimneys will cause a number of expensive structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the property owner and also create potentially important safety hazards. Expressway repairs leaks to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the owner needs a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney complication. Water in the chimney also begins rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a client may employ to prevent water penetration and complications to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which can ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that will prevent some of the most inordinate issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep 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 structure. Some caps could actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney experts could recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. These blockages might cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all can suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to pivotal issues. 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 can 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 a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from upscale repairs. Chimneys may 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 can 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 will 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 most optimal 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.

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. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a properly-sized flue to perform exactly. An incorrectly-sized liner will lead to excessive creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency could depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the homeowner. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch should be removed. Our technicians employ various cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs repairs.

Local Shoreham 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 property. 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’s 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 will 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 product that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney experts might usually be done in less couple of hours and will make sure your property 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 the owner.
