Highly-skilled Chimney Repair Contractors Near Town Of North Hempstead

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted features of a property. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually afforded other obstructed household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather will be a potential safety hazard. Destructive or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could become soft, cracked or otherwise non-functioning – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to faulty lined chimneys. 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. A stone chimney acts and is 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 component. Defective mortar joints or the use of imperfect 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 may ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate 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 may prevent some of the most high-priced leaks. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Town Of North Hempstead’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. In especially windy areas chimneys also can prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. 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 will cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the property.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all will suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar will crumble and crack leading to serious issues. 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 may slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair costs.

Our experts may 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 harm than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. It’s such a common dilemma , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys could block the right ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will 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 part of all of our chimney caps.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney can 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. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it is an approved liner for gas and oil. 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.

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 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 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 property. Your 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 task is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our objective 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 more than 1/8 inch should be removed. We employ several cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs to be addressed.

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’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 rarely 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 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 product that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen might usually be done in less couple of hours and will make sure your house does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our technicians pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to you.
