Pro Chimney Cap Contractors Near West Hampton

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a house. The fact that chimneys may do their job fittingly, even when discounted, contributes to this thought that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the quiet, passive black holes that are ‘just there’ that most property owners assume them to be. Leaky 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.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to faulty lined chimneys. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of West Hampton, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and can be like a brick chimney and it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a client could employ to prevent water penetration and harm to the chimney. Defective mortar joints or the use of shoddy mortar or brick might greatly increase the tendency to absorb and convey water to the interior of the masonry chimney. Our pros can advise the owner in your own unique 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 may prevent some of the most immoderate nightmares. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Expressway Roofing & Chimney for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Some caps could actually help facilitate the updraft function of the chimney as well by virtue of their special design. Our chimney pros may recommend the best solution for your chimney. It is the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that seldom have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to think how industrious animals and birds may be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

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

Our pros might be happy to come out and make a recommendation for you and provide a written estimate to install a new chimney cap, chimney damper or guard on your chimney. Water starts more issues than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and wears away at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues can protect you from upscale repairs. Chimneys can block the right ventilation and even enter your property, 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 will 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 will 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 best possible 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 and steam pressure is added to harden the resin, turning it into hard composite liner. 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. 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. 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. Your is responsible for not only allowing the products of combustion a passage out of the house, but the draft generated by the chimney also supplies the combustion air to the appliance. An incorrectly-sized liner can lead to other creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

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 will be removed. Our experts employ a variety of cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney needs replacing.

Several of the most common chimney cleaning plans 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 is 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 seldom the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney may 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 material that may resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney technicians can usually be done in less couple of hours and can make sure your property 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.
