Expert Chimney Repair Contractors Near Sound Beach

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a home. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property managers assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent weakening, deterioration and future troublesome, high-cost chimney repairs.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to shodily lined chimneys. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Sound Beach, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also begins rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and complication-prevention component. Installing chimney caps and dampers can protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our technicians only send fully-trained chimney cleaning professionals to your structure that will 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’s chimney experts 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 costly complications. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us 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. Some caps may actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Chimney dampers may 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 might cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the home.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all could suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to critical leaks. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A properly fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our pros will 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 causes more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys could block the right ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 part 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’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.

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 structure is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. 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 could leak into the living areas of the home. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform exactly. An shodily-sized liner might lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our duty is to provide recommendations that might 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 addition to 1/8 inch should be removed. Our experts employ several cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney needs help.

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 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 rarely the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney can remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases should 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 proper to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons will usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your residence does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our technicians pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to an owner.
