Professional Chimney Cap Contractors Near Town Of Garden City

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a residence. The fact that chimneys will do their job well, even when overlooked, contributes to this thought of ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several important functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent issues, deterioration and future expensive, high-cost chimney repairs.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to haphazardly lined chimneys. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Town Of Garden City, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and looks like a brick chimney and it could also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and problem-prevention part. Defective mortar joints or the use of faulty mortar or brick could greatly increase the tendency to absorb and steer water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our technicians only send fully-trained chimney cleaning highly-skilled pros to your property that could live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and the NCSG (National Chimney Sweeps Guild), the two regulatory organizations for the chimney industry in the United States.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that will prevent some of the most upscale issues. 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 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 property. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. 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. These blockages could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the property.

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

Our chimney repair and installation craftsmen are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more trouble than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from upscale repairs. Chimneys could block proper ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may 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 could 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 and the most beneficial 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 residence is safer for yourself and your family. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. 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 precisely-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 imperfectly-sized liner may lead to excessive creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

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

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 house. 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 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 may 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 appropriate to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney masons may usually be done in less couple of hours and will make sure your structure does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our pros pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to an owner.
