Expert Chimney Repair Contractors Near Town Of Garden City

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a residence. The chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually accorded other concerning household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property managers assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent issues, deterioration and future widespread, high-cost chimney fixes.

The issue 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. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Town Of Garden City, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone properly. A plethora of masonry products are porous and will absorb large amounts of water. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Caps and dampers keep out the weather, all animals and most debris – all while keeping sparks from leaving the chimney which can ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation 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 high-priced damage. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Town Of Garden City’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. In especially windy areas chimneys also may prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney technicians might recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. It is sometimes hard to believe how dextructive animals and birds may 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 can crumble and crack leading to pivotal issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. A precisely fitted chimney cap or guard can slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair prices.

Our experts could 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 begins more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from pricey repairs. Chimneys may block the right ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace may spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. Stray sparks could 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 could 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 best possible 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.

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. 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. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. As the mortar joints degrade, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide might leak into the living areas of the home. The chimney is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a way out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. Our obvious task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our wish is to provide recommendations that will 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 addition to 1/8 inch should be removed. We employ multiple cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney requires replacing.

Local Town Of Garden City Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the most common 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 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 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 seldom 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 may 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 necessary to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney experts can usually be done in less couple of hours and might 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 you.
