Professional Chimney Repair Contractors Near Westbury

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a residence. The fact that chimneys may do their job perfectly, even when forgetten about, contributes to this aura that ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys perform several pivotal functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Adverse or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys will become soft, cracked or otherwise broken – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the scary by-products of combustion.

The dilemma is that quite a bit of masonry chimneys were not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances burning natural gas and oil. Expressway repairs issues to all parts of your fireplace or chimney. Whether the owner wishes for a chimney repointing, chimney repairs to missing or loose bricks, repair of a leaking chimney crown, broken flue liner or other chimney threat. Water in the chimney also causes rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a property owner might employ to prevent water penetration and leaks to the chimney. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our masons only send fully-trained chimney cleaning fully-trained techs to your home that could 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 may prevent some of the most costly damage. 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. The job of the chimney cap is to stop rain from entering the flue and to stop pests from building nests in your chimney or using the chimney for a doorway into your structure. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Our chimney sweeps will recommend the best solution for your chimney. It’s the perfect upgrade for fireplace chimneys in older houses that hardly ever have a damper. These blockages could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all might suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar can crumble and crack leading to pivotal problems. 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 craftsmen are very knowledgeable about the many various types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water begins more complications than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their house in your chimney. Chimneys may block the correct ventilation and even enter your property, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and 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 will 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 could depend on the type of deposits. The Thermocrete process coats the inside of the chimney from top to bottom with a highly durable ceramic sealant. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it is an approved liner for gas and oil. 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 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 three main functions. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a precisely-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. 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 may lead to extra creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

The required cleaning frequency could depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the client. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch can be removed. Our pros employ a variety of cleaning plans to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney consultations are the only way to know when the chimney needs help.

Several of the usual 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 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 is 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 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 might be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that might resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature appropriate to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney sweeps might 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. Our pros pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch service by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
