Great Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Town Of Easthampton

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a structure. The chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually accorded other obstructed household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather will be a potential safety hazard. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent trouble, deterioration and future dangerous, high-cost chimney repairs.

The problem is that a lot of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. A lot of masonry chimney materials (except for authentic stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone correctly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a customer can employ to prevent water penetration and problems to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers may protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our experts will advise you in your own unique situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation call or text us at 631.388.7555.

Town Of Easthampton, LI’s Factory Freestanding Chimney Masons Contractor

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that can prevent some of the most expensive damage. 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. 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. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney sweeps might recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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 may cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the home.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all may suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to critical problems. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, latest chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation masons are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more issues 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 property in your chimney. Chimneys can block the correct ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids can 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 may be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

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 fitting for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. 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.

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. As the mortar joints wear away, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can leak into the living areas of the structure. 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. Our principal job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our duty is to provide recommendations that can 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 will be removed. Our experts employ several cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney needs replacing.

Local Town Of Easthampton Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the most common 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 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 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 should 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 appropriate to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen will usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your property 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 an owner.
