The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a property. A Home’s chimney tends to not receive the attention or the concern usually afforded other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard. Regular chimney maintenance is key to prevent weakening, deterioration and future dangerous, high-cost chimney repairs.

Shodily lined chimneys could cause a number of immoderate structural and cosmetic issues for the property owner and also create potentially critical safety hazards. Expressway repairs problems to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether a client needs a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. Water in the chimney also causes rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and trouble-prevention part. Defective mortar joints or the use of incorrect mortar or brick will greatly increase the tendency to absorb and deliver water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our experts only send fully-trained chimney cleaning highly-skilled pros to your home 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. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair inspection 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 can prevent some of the most expensive harm. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Town Of Westbury’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney expert knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps will actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. 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 could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar can 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 properly fitted chimney cap or guard could slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair expenses.

Our chimney repair and installation craftsmen are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from inordinate repairs. Chimneys can block the correct ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids could keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace may 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.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney could 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’s 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 locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your house.

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. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a rightly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform precisely. Our prominent function 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 property owner. 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 could be removed. Our experts employ many cleaning systems to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney needs repairs.

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 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 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 almost never the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney might 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 material that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney project.

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