Professional Chimney Cap Contractors Near The Town Of Westbury

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a residence. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually afforded other leaking household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard. Troublesome or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise non-functioning – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Improperly lined chimneys could cause a number of immoderate structural and cosmetic worries for the homeowner and also create potentially essential safety hazards. Expressway repairs leaks to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a homeowner wants a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. A stone chimney acts and appears 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 damage-prevention component. Defective mortar joints or the use of imperfect mortar or brick could greatly increase the tendency to absorb and pass water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our masons might advise the owner in your own subjective situation what is best for you. 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 will 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 technician 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 house. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney technicians might recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. These blockages could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the home.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to critical damage. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, correct chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our technicians 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 initiates more harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. It’s such a common dilemma , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys may block the correct ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace could spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. Stray sparks might 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 may 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 is air and water tight.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. 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 correctly-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. Our principal job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency may depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the homeowner. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch might be removed. We employ many cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

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 property. 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 clean 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 almost never the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney could 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 material that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons can usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your house 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 a homeowner.
