Great Chimney Repair Contractors Near Town Of North Hempstead

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a structure. The chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually accorded other alarming household systems. Chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most customers assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent weakening, deterioration and future expensive, high-cost chimney repairs.

Imprecisely lined chimneys might cause a number of immoderate structural and cosmetic complications for the customer and also create potentially critical safety hazards. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Town Of North Hempstead, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. 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 and leak-prevention part. Defective mortar joints or the use of incorrect mortar or brick may greatly increase the tendency to absorb and guide 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 might ignite nearby combustibles like your roof shingles, siding or nearby trees.

Town Of North Hempstead, LI’s Masonry Chimney Inspections Contractor

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that will prevent some of the most expensive issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us 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. 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. It is sometimes hard to see how industrious animals and birds could be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

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

Our chimney repair and installation pros are very knowledgeable about the many various types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their residence in your chimney. Chimneys could block the correct 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 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 component of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney will 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 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.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. Liners in chimneys serve 3 main functions. 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 wear away, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the residence. 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 major job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency will 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 will be removed. Our technicians employ multiple cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

Several of the usual chimney cleaning practices 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 clean 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 hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney can remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases might be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons may usually be done in less couple of hours and might make sure your residence 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 you.
