The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a structure. Your chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather could be a potential safety hazard. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and freed up masonry products all present a threat to homes.

The dilemma is that a ton of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Expressway repairs leaks to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a client wants a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney complication. A stone chimney acts and looks like a brick chimney and it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a customer may employ to prevent water penetration and trouble to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of faulty mortar or brick may greatly increase the tendency to absorb and carry water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which could ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection call or text Expressway 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 expensive harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney craftsmen 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 home. Chimney caps also come with spark shields to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Chimney dampers can help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. It is sometimes hard to see how dextructive animals and birds could be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar might crumble and crack leading to pivotal complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A correctly fitted chimney cap or guard might slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair expenses.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their structure in your chimney. Chimneys will block the right ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks will be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney could depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it is 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 house is safer for yourself and your family. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. 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. In the tests, it was determined that if the flue gases were allowed to penetrate to the brick and mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. Liners provide a precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Your is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a passage out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An haphazardly-sized liner will lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our aim 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 more than 1/8 inch will be removed. Our pros employ many cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of to be fixed.

Several of the normal 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 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 almost never the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney may remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases might 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 exact to the class of the chimney job.

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