Highly-skilled Chimney Inspection Contractors Near Stewart Manor

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a house. Your chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather might be a potential safety hazard. Damaged or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise problematic – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Shodily lined chimneys will cause a number of upscale structural and cosmetic complications for the customer and also create potentially pivotal safety hazards. Expressway repairs problems to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a homeowner wishes for a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney problem. A stone chimney acts and is like a brick chimney and it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and trouble-prevention component. Installing chimney caps and dampers may protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our masons will advise a homeowner in your own unique situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate call or text us 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 immoderate damage. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney pro 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. Chimney caps also come with spark shields to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. 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 could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the structure.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will 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 precisely fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues can protect you from high-priced repairs. Chimneys could block proper 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 materials. Stray sparks could 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 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. 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 residence.

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. 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 weather, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide might leak into the living areas of the house. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a exactly-sized flue to perform exactly. Our main job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total 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 consumer. 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 can be removed. Our pros employ several cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney requires fixing.

Several of the most common chimney cleaning practices 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 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 seldom 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 product that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney service.

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