Highly-skilled Chimney Cap Contractors Near Wading River

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted components of a structure. Your chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually given other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard. Harmful 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.

The worry is that a ton of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Wading River, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and can be like a brick chimney and it can also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer should employ to prevent water penetration and complications to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of faulty mortar or brick might greatly increase the tendency to absorb and carry water to the interior of the masonry chimney. We can advise an owner in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate call or text Expressway 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 costly problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. Some caps can actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Chimney dampers could help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. It is sometimes hard to believe how dextructive animals and birds can be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

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 pivotal 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 might slow down wear-and-tear on your chimney and lining, potentially saving you from large repair fees.

Our chimney repair and installation experts are very knowledgeable about all types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and weathers at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues will protect you from ritzy repairs. Chimneys will block the right ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may 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 might 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 can depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most ideal for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. 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 property.

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. As the mortar joints degrade, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide may leak into the living areas of the house. Your is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a way out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An haphazardly-sized liner could lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency might 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 addition to 1/8 inch could be removed. We employ many cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

Local Wading River Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

Several of the most common 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 structure. 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’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 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 may be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature proper to the class of the chimney service.

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