Professional Chimney Repair Contractors Near Town Of Easthampton

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a home. The fact that chimneys may do their job perfectly, even when damaged, contributes to this thought that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several essential functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent complications, deterioration and future dangerous, high-cost chimney fixes.

The problem is that a ton of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas & oil. Expressway repairs complications to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether an owner wants a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. Water in the chimney also starts rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety & problem-prevention part. Installing chimney caps & dampers could protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Caps & dampers keep out the weather, all animals & most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which may ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection call or text Expressway’s chimney experts 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 leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney 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 & to stop pests from building nests in your chimney or using the chimney for a doorway into your home. In especially windy areas chimneys also may prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. 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. These blockages may cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the home.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all will suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble & crack leading to serious issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain & the side mesh areas prevent pests & leaves from entering the chimney. A rightly fitted chimney cap or guard will slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney & lining, potentially saving you from large repair expenses.

Our technicians will be happy to come out and make a recommendation for you & provide a written estimate to install a new chimney cap, chimney damper or guard on your chimney. Water starts more harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks & eats away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues can protect you from high-priced repairs. Chimneys might block the correct ventilation & even enter your property, potentially spreading disease & 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 may 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 can 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 & 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 & steam pressure is added to harden the resin, turning it into hard composite liner. A stainless steel chimney liner is air & 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 home is safer for yourself & your family. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. 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 & mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. Liners provide a properly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a exactly-sized flue to perform properly. An faulty-sized liner may lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency will 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 & creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch might be removed. Our experts employ a variety of cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs repairs.

Several of the usual chimney cleaning methods that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method & 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’s necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are hardly ever 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 & shelf, firebox & damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases shall be either removed andreplaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney job.

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