Great Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near South Hempstead

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a residence. The fact that chimneys can do their job well, even when omitted, contributes to this thought that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most clients assume them to be. Harmful or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys may become soft, cracked or otherwise leaky – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Imprecisely lined chimneys might cause a number of high-priced structural and cosmetic problems for the consumer and also create potentially pivotal safety hazards. Lots of masonry chimney products (except for genuine stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Water in the chimney also begins rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Hundreds of masonry products are porous and can absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers may protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our technicians may advise an owner in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation 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 pricey leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney mason knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps could actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. 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. Even just falling leaves can build up without the correct chimney cap in place.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all could suffer rust and deterioration. 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. Of course, most apt chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

We might 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 harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from upscale repairs. Chimneys can block the right ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks may 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. 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your home.

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 three 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 properly. Our prominent function is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our goal is to provide recommendations that could 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 can be removed. We employ multiple cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of to be addressed.

Several of the normal 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 home. 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 rarely 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 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 necessary to the class of the chimney service.

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