The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a structure. The chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually accorded other worrisome household systems. Chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most clients assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent leaks, deterioration and future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

Improperly lined chimneys might cause a number of inordinate structural and cosmetic issues for the client and also create potentially critical safety hazards. Quite a bit of masonry chimney products (except for real stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and appears like a brick chimney and it might also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Many of masonry products are porous and can absorb large amounts of water. 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 may 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 high-priced 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 technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers could 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 a proper chimney cap in place.

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

Our chimney repair and installation technicians are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys could block proper ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can 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 component of all of our chimney caps.

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. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most fitting 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 is air and water tight.

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. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. 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 rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. The chimney 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 improperly-sized liner can lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency might depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the customer. 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 should be removed. Our experts employ several cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections 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 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 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 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 should be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons could usually be done in less couple of hours and can 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 an owner.
