Highly-skilled Chimney Repair Contractors Near West Babylon

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a home. The chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually afforded other damaged household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather might be a potential safety hazard. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent weakening, deterioration & future preventible, high-cost chimney repairs.

The complication is that a lot 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 West Babylon, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone precisely. Many of masonry products are porous & could absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers can protect your chimney & maintain a safe chimney damper. We will advise the owner in your own special situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that might prevent some of the most upscale leaks. 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. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and products. Some caps could 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 & close. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that seldom have a damper. It is sometimes hard to believe how dextructive animals and birds will be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

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

Our chimney repair and installation experts are very knowledgeable about numerous types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more complications than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues might protect you from immoderate repairs. Chimneys can block the correct ventilation & even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh & lids will 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 can 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. A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “a clay, ceramic or metal liner. A lining cleaning is cost-effective & 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 & 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 correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves & gas or oil furnaces require a rightly-sized flue to perform correctly. An shodily-sized liner might lead to more creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency may depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel & the burning habits of the client. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot & creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in excess of 1/8 inch could be removed. Our technicians employ various cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney requires to be addressed.

Expressway: Your Local West Babylon Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the normal chimney cleaning practices that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method & 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 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 could remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox & damper. Heat, moisture, creosote & gases can be either removed andreplaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney project.

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