Chimney Sweep / Chimney Cleaning in Millerton
Dependable chimney sweep services are important for Millerton NY homeowners because of the highly flammable creosote that builds up in the chimney lining. Each time a wood-burning fire is lit in the fireplace, more creosote is deposited in the flue. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that the chimney be cleaned once 1/8” of creosote has built up in a chimney. An annual chimney cleaning is often enough. With heavy use, a mid-winter chimney cleaning may also be needed.
Fire safety experts all agree that homeowners should schedule annual chimney inspections. We offer our Millerton customers three levels of chimney inspections. All of the most effective, current equipment is used, including a special video camera used to do a thorough check of the chimney lining. You can enjoy greater peace of mind knowing that your fireplace and chimney are safe to use in winter.
Chimney masonry is durable, but the time comes when repair is needed. Other components of the chimney require repair more frequently, such as the mortar that protects the masonry from moisture and ensures that the structure is stable. Damage to chimneys caused by moisture is common, and Millerton NY homeowners rely on our chimney sweeps for all needed chimney repairs.
The chimney liner and firebox protect combustible parts of your home from extreme temperatures. It is essential that these components are in a good state of repair. If a chimney liner, for instance, has even the smallest amount of deterioration, your home could be at risk of a hazardous fire. When our experienced chimney sweeps are seen in our marked service trucks in the Millerton area, they are often providing such services as chimney liner repair and chimney liner replacement.
The chimney crown at the top of the chimney has the significant function of preventing moisture from entering the chimney system. Due to exposure to harsh outdoor elements, cracks and other forms of deterioration often occur. Our chimney technicians provide repair and rebuild of chimney crowns.
Chimney Rebuilding & Masonry Work
For your chimney venting system to properly operate, proper construction is needed. When a chimney rebuild and other types of masonry work are needed, homeowners in Millerton NY rely on our certified chimney sweeps to perform the work. It is not unusual for bricklayers to provide a lower bid, but their workers are seldom familiar with the operation of a chimney system. It will save you money to schedule chimney rebuilding and masonry work with our professionals, who get the job done right the first time.
Chimney Caps & Chase Tops
Keeping moisture out of your chimney system is a great way to cut costs on chimney maintenance. Chimney caps and chase tops provide the best defense against moisture, since they keep rain, snow, sleet, and ice out of your chimney system. During chimney inspections, our trained technicians check to ensure that chimney caps and chase tops are in good condition. These essential accessories are not as durable as other parts of the chimney, and our service technicians can provide needed repair or replacement.
