Pro Chimney Inspection Contractors Near West Sayville

The chimney is one of the most useful things of a structure. The fact that chimneys may do their job well, even when overlooked, contributes to this aura that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several pertinent functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent trouble, deterioration and future widespread, high-cost chimney fixes.

Improperly lined chimneys can cause a number of expensive structural & cosmetic problems for the property owner and also create potentially essential safety hazards. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of West Sayville, in which moisture that has penetrated the products periodically freezes & expands causing undue stress. A stone chimney acts and appears like a brick chimney & it can also be protected from the effects of water penetration. A lot of masonry products are porous and might absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers may protect your chimney & maintain a safe chimney damper. We will advise an owner in your own subjective situation what is best for you. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate 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 immoderate complications. 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. The job of the chimney cap is to stop rain from entering the flue & to stop pests from building nests in your chimney or using the chimney for a doorway into your house. Some caps may 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’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that almost never have a damper. It’s sometimes hard to see 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 & flue. Chimney liner tiles & mortar may crumble and crack leading to serious complications. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and 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 masons are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water starts more damage than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks & erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues could protect you from pricey repairs. Chimneys might block the correct ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease & wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh & lids can keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace will spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks may 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 and the best possible for your fireplace chimney & 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 & water tight.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot & 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 & mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. As the mortar joints weather, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles & dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the residence. Modern wood stoves & gas or oil furnaces require a rightly-sized flue to perform properly. Our prominent role is to remove flue deposits & evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

Our wish is to provide recommendations that can improve the safety & efficiency of your appliance & venting system. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch may be removed. We employ several cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney inspections are the only way to know when the chimney requires repairs.

Local West Sayville Chimney Repair, Chimney Caps & Top Dampers

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

Chemical cleaning: This requires two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney technicians might usually be done in less couple of hours & could make sure your structure 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 a homeowner.
