The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted things of a residence. The fact that chimneys will do their job well, even when ignored, contributes to this idea that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several vital functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Destructive or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise damaged – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the dangerous by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to haphazardly lined chimneys. Expressway repairs issues 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 complication. 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 damage-prevention component. Defective mortar joints or the use of imperfect mortar or brick may greatly increase the tendency to absorb and move water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our technicians only send fully-trained chimney cleaning professionals to your residence that may 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 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 expensive issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney pro knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. Some caps will actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Chimney dampers can help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. 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. It’s sometimes hard to see how dextructive animals and birds might 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 serious damage. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, right chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation experts are very knowledgeable about the many various types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues could protect you from inordinate repairs. Chimneys could block proper ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will 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 will be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney might depend on the type of deposits. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it’s an approved liner for gas and oil. 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 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 3 main functions. 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 exactly-sized flue to perform exactly. Our prominent job is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

Our duty is to provide recommendations that could 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 should be removed. Our experts employ various cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs repairs.

Several of the normal 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 residence. 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 hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney could remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases might be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney project.

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