Highly-skilled Chimney Inspection Contractors Near The Town of Oyster Bay

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a residence. The chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually accorded other leaking household systems. Chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most homeowners assume them to be. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and uplifted masonry products all present a complication to chimneys.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to shodily lined chimneys. Hundreds of masonry chimney products (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and is like a brick chimney and it could also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and trouble-prevention part. 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 roof shingles, siding or nearby trees.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that will prevent some of the most expensive 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. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. In especially windy areas chimneys also might prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers can help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to see how dextructive animals and birds might be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all may suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might crumble and crack leading to serious 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 might slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair prices.

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their residence in your chimney. Chimneys can block the correct ventilation and even enter your house, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace may 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. 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. 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 property.

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 house is safer for yourself and your family. 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. As the mortar joints weather, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the structure. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform precisely. Our major task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our aim is to provide recommendations that will 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 a variety of cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires 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 residence. 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’s 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 material that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons could 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 project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to you.
