Highly-skilled Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Town of Oyster Bay

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a home. Your chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually given other leaking household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard. Problematic or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could become soft, cracked or otherwise broken – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the dangerous by-products of combustion.

Inexactly lined chimneys can cause a number of high-priced structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the homeowner and also create potentially essential safety hazards. Expressway repairs leaks to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the owner wants a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney complication. A stone chimney acts and can be like a brick chimney and it could also be protected from the effects of water penetration. A plethora of masonry materials are porous and may absorb large amounts of water. Defective mortar joints or the use of imperfect mortar or brick may greatly increase the tendency to absorb and carry 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 can 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 nightmares. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Town of Oyster Bay’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Chimney caps also come with spark shields to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. With precision engineering this damper is easy to open and close. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that rarely have a damper. These blockages may cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the structure.

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

Our chimney repair and installation pros are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more problems than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. It’s such a common problem , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their property in your chimney. Chimneys will block the right ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks will 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 may 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 optimal 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your house.

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 structure is safer for yourself and your family. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. 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 erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the house. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform correctly. An erroneously-sized liner will lead to extra creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our duty 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 in excess of 1/8 inch may be removed. Our technicians employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of repairs.

Several of the most common 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 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 is impossible to clean 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 should 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 necessary to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney masons could usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your structure does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our masons pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
