Chimney Installations In And Around New Windsor, New York
Are you building a house in Orange, Rockland, Ulster, Putnam or Dutchess County, New York? Do you need to have a beautiful and safe chimney built that will last you the life of your home? Those of us at All Seasons Chimney take great pride in building chimneys from the ground up. Because we know chimneys inside and out and have worked on them for over a quarter of a century, we know exactly how to construct a chimney that will require as little maintenance as possible. Of course, we always recommend that your chimney be inspected and swept annually, but with a chimney built by the team at All Seasons Chimney, Inc., you won’t have to worry about whether or not your chimney was properly designed or installed.
There are two basic types of chimneys—masonry chimneys (built entirely of bricks, blocks, or stone and mortar) and factory-built metal chimneys (which are connected to a lightweight metal firebox). There are a few hybrid systems, too, where a metal firebox is connected to a masonry chimney. Our skilled team can install a prefabricated or masonry chimney, custom made to accommodate the heating appliance of your choice. We can also present several options tailored to your budget.
If yours is not a new construction project, but rather your existing chimney is in such bad condition that a tear down and rebuild has been suggested, we can handle that for you, too. In addition to chimney installations, we also take on many chimney rebuilds each year, which you can read more about on our Chimney Rebuilding page.
Anatomy Of Your Chimney
A chimney seems simple enough, but there are actually many parts that go into the construction of a safe, strong masonry chimney. Only a CSIA-certified chimney technician can be trusted to build a chimney that’s up to code and properly connected. From top to bottom, your masonry chimney should have the following to operate safely and efficiently:
- Chimney cap
- Top-sealing damper
- Animal guard/spark arrestor
- Mortar crown or stainless steel chase cover
- Lined chimney flue
- Smoke chamber
- Smoke shelf
- Ash dump
- Strong foundation
In addition to all of these important components, a chimney built by All Seasons Chimney, Inc. will have all the necessary dimensions and clearances for optimum performance.
Our Chimneys Are Beautiful, Tough, And Efficient
Have you ever passed by an old, abandoned house that is falling down around its chimney, which still stands tall and proud? Our aim is to build chimneys just like that—able to withstand whatever time, nature, and neglect have in store for them.
