Highly-skilled Chimney Repair Contractors Near Town Of Shelter Island

The chimney is one of the most useful features of a house. Your chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually accorded other worrisome household systems. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most clients assume them to be. Leaky or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys could become soft, cracked or otherwise leaky – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the dangerous by-products of combustion.

The complication is that hundreds of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas & oil. Expressway repairs weakening to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the owner wishes for a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney problem. A stone chimney acts & looks like a brick chimney and it can also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety & harm-prevention component. Defective mortar joints or the use of faulty mortar or brick will greatly increase the tendency to absorb and move 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 could ignite nearby combustibles like your roofing shingles, siding or nearby trees. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that will prevent some of the most immoderate nightmares. 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. 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 home. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney craftsmen can recommend the best solution for your chimney. 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. Even just falling leaves could build up without a proper chimney cap in place.

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

Our chimney repair & installation pros are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards & dampers. Water initiates more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks & erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their structure 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 can 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 could be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

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. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing & it’s an approved liner for gas & oil. Composite chimney lining system that gets inflated into the chimney flue & 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. 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. Liners provide a rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a rightly-sized flue to perform properly. Our major job is to remove flue deposits & evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our mission is to provide recommendations that will improve the safety & efficiency of your appliance and venting system. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot & creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in excess of 1/8 inch may be removed. We employ many cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney requires repairs.

Expressway: Your Local Town Of Shelter Island Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the normal 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 & dissolve heavy creosote & glaze deposits. These cases are almost never 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 & shelf, firebox & damper. Heat, moisture, creosote & gases might be either removed &replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This needs two visits – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney pros may usually be done in less couple of hours & 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 service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
