Protect Your Family from Carbon Monoxide

 Carbon monoxide (CO) is often called “the silent killer”, because it is odorless, colorless, and you will not realize you are being exposed to it. In fact, carbon monoxide exposure accounts for 500 deaths per year in the US alone simply because people are unaware they are being poisoned. Carbon monoxide can come from gas stoves, fires, boilers, water heaters (gas powered), and more. When these appliances aren’t maintained properly or vented properly, a carbon monoxide emergency may result. Protect Your Family from Carbon Monoxide - Frierson LA - New Buck

Signs and Symptoms

The reason carbon monoxide poisoning often goes unnoticed is because the symptoms mimic those of a common cold or flu: a dull headache, weakness, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, shortness of breath, confusion, blurred vision, and loss of consciousness. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a life-threatening medical emergency. A slow exposure can cause permanent organ damage, and a fast case can cause death and brain damage quickly. As soon as you suspect a carbon monoxide exposure, seek medical help immediately.

Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

You can prevent carbon monoxide exposure in your home and protect your family from devastating injury or death.

  • Schedule routine chimney maintenance so that your chimney system works correctly, venting these hazardous gases out of your house. Routine chimney sweeps and annual chimney inspections keep your system working properly.
  • Never light a fire in a fireplace that has not been inspected for safety. If you own a new home, do not assume that it was inspected during the home inspection. Realtors and sellers may install a new gas appliance to spruce the place up before a sale, and it was never properly installed or inspected.
  • Keep the damper open while a fire is burning in your fireplace. The damper will block airflow through the chimney and prevent proper ventilation of the fire. If your damper is open and your fireplace is still pushing smoke into your living space, it should be assessed by a professional.
  • Have your chimney system repaired by professionals only. Do not attempt to make your own repairs or installations.
  • Install carbon monoxide detectors in your home and check them monthly. Change the batteries twice a year when the time changes or if they need replacing during one of your monthly checks.

It is up to you to protect your family from carbon monoxide exposure. Maintaining the heat systems in your home is half the battle. When you have a carbon monoxide detector installed, you can give your family precious time to evacuate the house before poisoning takes place. Leave the house and seek medical care to be sure, and do not return until the house has been assessed and necessary repairs have been made.

If you have concerns about carbon monoxide exposure or you’re uncertain of the last time your chimney system was inspected for safety, call the professionals today. New Buck Chimney Services can handle all of your chimney needs in Shreveport and surrounding areas. Make your appointment today.

Stainless Steel Vs. Clay Tile Liners

All of the parts of your chimney system are important for safe and efficient chimney function year after year. Your chimney liner is like a human’s skin. It’s one of the largest parts of the system, has an important purpose, and is often neglected and mistreated.

Why Line Your Chimney? Stainless Steel Vs. Clay Tile Liners Image - Shreveport LA - New Buck Chimney

No matter what type of chimney liner you use, it is essential that it is maintained so that it’s in good shape. Chimney liners line your chimney from top to bottom. It can change the size of your flue so that it’s appropriately-sized for new appliances. It also keeps your family safe.

  1. Your liner protects your masonry from corrosive gases.
    The byproducts of a fire are corrosive to masonry. Without a liner, your masonry is in constant contact with corrosive creosote which can lead to damaged masonry and leaks.
  2. Your liner contains the heat from your fire.
    As the chimney vents the fire, it also holds heat that can affect the materials of your house. Over time, constant or periodic heat applied to beams can weaken them, leading to a structural issue or fire hazard.
  3. Your liner keeps carbon monoxide from affecting your air.
    An appropriately installed chimney lining system keeps the carbon monoxide inside the flue. Without a liner, carbon monoxide can escape through the porous masonry and poison your family.

Types of Liners and Their Use

Homes with old masonry chimneys probably have clay tile liners. These are appropriate for use with wood fires only because they cannot withstand the moisture produced by a gas fire. They are cheap and easily installed but do not last. Clay tile liners need periodic maintenance such as re-lining and joint repairs in order to keep working safely.

Newer structures and systems that have been re-lined may have stainless steel liners. Stainless steel liners are a popular option because they should last 80 years with proper maintenance. They are also appropriate for use with all fuel types, so they’re a great option if you’ll likely convert in the future.

HeatShield® Cerfractory Flue Sealant

HeatShield proprietary Cerfractory® technology is a combination of ceramic and refractory material which can be applied to a damaged flue liner to restore it completely. In fact, HeatShield® can fully restore a clay tile liner, and it will afterward be safe for all fuel types. HeatShield® Cerfractory Flue Sealant can repair joints in a lining system, resurface it, or line it completely through an easy process by a certified technician. If you need a liner repair or installation, give us a call.

Signs You Need a Repair

If your masonry chimney feels hot to the touch or if you find flakes or pieces of clay tile liner, you may need liner repair. If your chimney doesn’t have a liner, you need a liner installation. Your chimney system is not safe to operate without one.

New Buck Chimney Services is experienced and trained in HeatShield® product use and installations as well as installing stainless steel liners. Whether you want a repair, a replacement, or installation, New Buck Chimney Services can be your chimney solution. Call us today to schedule your lining services!

Benefits of Having Your Chimney Swept

Even mild Louisiana is seeing cool temperatures this December, and you may be building fires for more than just the holiday ambiance. When it’s time for burn season, make sure your fireplace and chimney are clean and ready for a fire. When your chimney is clean your fireplace will work properly.

A Clean Chimney Works Properly Benefits of Having Your Chimney Swept Image - Shreveport LA - New Buck Chimney

Both the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommend routine chimney sweeps and annual inspections for the safest and most efficient chimney system.

  • When the system is clean, the air flows properly from the fireplace through the smoke chamber, up the flue, and out of the chimney. But if the fireplace and flue are coated with soot, creosote, and ash, it slows the airflow, which drops the efficiency of the chimney system.
  • When the chimney is less efficient, the air stalls in the flue, exposing the chimney lining, masonry, and creosote to high temperatures.
  • A drop in efficiency can cause the wood in the fireplace to burn less efficiently. The result will be that you have to burn more wood than you should to reach the desired temperature.
  • Chimneys that aren’t swept regularly often result in a stinky or smoky fireplace—sometimes both!

A Clean Chimney Saves You Money

Because a clean chimney is an efficient chimney, you will save money when you schedule chimney sweeps regularly. You will burn less wood when your chimney works properly. Your chimney will produce less pollution in the air outside your home, and less particulate pollution, odors, smoke, and ash on the inside.

Chimney sweeps are not a gimmick, a scam, or a once-every-decade job. This service is important for prevention, and can save you hundreds in routine services, and thousands in possible damages. When you keep your chimney clean, you will need less service appointments. When a certified expert gets a look at your chimney system, you’re less likely to experience a hazard, potential fire, possible injury, loss of property, or even death.

A Clean Chimney is an Enjoyable Chimney

Your chimney is likely the focal point of your home. Families like to use the fireplace as a backdrop for holiday festivities, gatherings, and even family photos. When your chimney is swept, you don’t have to worry about the ash buildup sneaking into your photos. You will have a big, warm, and beautiful flame for your enjoyment, and won’t be bothered by odors, smoke, or have difficulty keeping your fire lit.

At New Buck Chimney Services, we offer the best services for our neighbors in the Shreveport area. When you schedule with us your chimney sweep includes: a thorough scraping of the chimney cap, brushing and scraping of the firebox, brushing off the damper and smoke shelf, brushing of the chimney liner, vacuuming of the smoke shelf, and a complete level 1 inspection.

You can schedule yours now, and rest assured that your chimney is safe for use through the winter, and won’t need another inspection for 12 months. Treat yourself to a clean fireplace this holiday season. Call New Buck Chimney Services today!

Upgrading the Look of Your Fireplace

This is the time of year when many homeowners begin to reassess the look of their home. As clutter is cleared away for holiday décor and room is made for guests, homeowners might discover there is just something off about that old fireplace.

If you live in the Shreveport area, you don’t have to have a whole new fireplace installed in order to give your hearth a facelift. In fact, New Buck has many options to get you back to the fireplace of your dreams!

Brick and Stone WorkUpgrading the Look of Your Fireplace Image- Shreveport LA - New Buck Chimney

The masons on staff at New Buck Chimney Services have the experience and training to build a new hearth exactly to your liking. Whether you’re looking to add a mantel to your existing fireplace, or recreate the entire existing hearth, we can help. New Buck uses appropriate fire-safe products that will keep your hearth safe and lasting. When you start the process with New Buck, we can recommend a wide variety of brick and stone so that your new hearth complements your home décor and your personality.

Stain Removal

If your chimney has experienced a leak in the past, there may still be stains on your masonry and we can help remove them! This process can be done to exterior masonry as well as interior. A clean chimney can be just what your fireplace needs this season.

Glass Doors

Not only can you upgrade the look of your fireplace by adding glass doors, but it also improves the efficiency of your open masonry fireplace. Glass doors prevent drafts, heated air loss, and are safer than an open fireplace. When you have glass doors installed, they are safe, fitted to the fireplace opening, and long-lasting. The ambient heat from the fire still heats the room through the glass and can help you control the heat during holiday gatherings.

Installing an Insert

A sure-fire way to upgrade the look of your fireplace is to install a new one. An insert is a closed unit that is retrofitted directly into your existing fireplace. It connects to your chimney and may require a new liner to compensate for the capacity of the insert. Inserts come in a variety of fuel types—pellet, wood, and gas—and they all install directly into your fireplace, are highly efficient, and give your fireplace a facelift. Inserts come in a variety of styles from contemporary to traditional and everything in between.

No matter what type of hearth you have, or what type of fuel you burn, there are always options to improve the look of your fireplace. At New Buck Chimney Services, we strive to be Shreveport’s chimney experts so that our neighbors and our community stays safe. Do not attempt to make changes to your system without the help of a professional. You can decorate around your hearth, but practice fireplace safety at all times. For all of your hearth needs and questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

How Often Should a Chimney be Inspected?

Homeowners who have a fireplace might not know there are still professionals out there that sweep and inspect chimneys! These routine services keep chimneys safe, efficient, and long-lasting.

CSIA Inspections Explained

You only need a chimney inspection every 12 months, and the kind of inspection you need, depends on what’s happened in those 12 months.How Often Should a Chimney be Inspected Image - Shreveport LA - New Buck Chimney

  • Level One – This inspection is required every year when there has been no change in the use of the chimney and no expected change. This level includes all readily accessible portions of the chimney system and requires no special tools.
  • Level Two – This inspection will be recommended if a level one inspection shows a concern. It is required if any changes are made to the system (installation, repair), a natural occurrence affects the system (earthquake, fire, tornado), and when the property is sold or transferred. If you are buying or selling a home with a chimney, it should have a level two inspection. This inspection includes everything in a level one with the addition of hidden parts of the chimney in attics and crawlspaces.
  • Level Three – This inspection is recommended to identify a serious hazard found in a level one or two inspection. It includes everything in a level one and two inspection in addition to the removal of certain components of the structure (ceilings, walls) and chimney system to access the hazard.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), annual chimney inspections keep your chimney working safely and efficiently. Routine maintenance including sweeps and inspections also extend the life of your chimney, prevent major damage, and help you stay within the safety regulations of municipal codes as well as your homeowner’s insurance policy.

Benefits of a Chimney Inspection

When you schedule a chimney inspection annually, you don’t have to worry about your chimney’s safety during burn season. In fact, you can prevent damage by remembering your annual inspection.

  1. Prevent Winter Damage
    Even small cracks can allow water that will damage the masonry through winter. If you schedule a chimney inspection before burn season, your chimney sweep will identify and address weaknesses, issues, and hazards before more damage is caused! Minor masonry repairs are quick and affordable.
  2. Prevent Water Damage
    Just like winter damage, cracks and voids in the masonry, shifting in flashing, and deteriorated crown or cap can lead to water damage. This is 100 percent preventable when it’s caught by a technician during an inspection and repaired.
  3. Raise Efficiency
    When your chimney is functioning properly, you can guarantee that your chimney works better. Airflow will be more optimal, fuel will burn more efficiently, and heat output will be higher. You’re also less likely to experience a chimney fire when your chimney is working efficiently.

If you haven’t scheduled a chimney inspection in the last calendar year, you should do so as soon as possible. There is still time to have it done before winter! New Buck Chimney Services offers sweeping and inspections year-round for those who have to schedule during the winter, spring, or summer as well! It’s our goal that our customers in the Shreveport area have a safe and comfortable fireplace.

How Chimney Caps Protect Your Chimney

Of all the parts of the chimney system, the cap is one of the most important. The chimney cap protects your chimney year-round, so that it can work properly when you need it.

The Chimney Cap Keeps the Weather Out How Chimney Caps Protect Your Chimney Image - Shreveport LA - New Buck Chimney

During winter the chimney cap will keep snow and ice out of the chimney flue, but it keeps rain out year-round. Certain caps are designed to prevent wind from blowing down the flue as well, and still others can close completely to protect the chimney opening completely when the fire is out. These are called top-sealing dampers.

The Chimney Cap Keeps Wildlife Out

Anything that can climb onto or land on your roof can also climb into your flue opening. Small critters like squirrels and chipmunks can climb into your flue and back out again, leaving behind droppings and fur, and scratching your liner as they go. Larger animals like raccoons can climb into your flue and become stuck, obstructing airflow and suffocating, blocking the flue completely. Animal removal costs money, and a fire will cost dearly in insurance claims and repairs. It’s best to prevent animal intrusion, and what better way than protection from the top-down?

You can even invest in a chimney cap that keeps birds out of the flue. Small birds can slip into even the smallest opening, nesting in your flue and causing a raucous. One bird in particular, called the chimney swift, historically nested in hollow trees. As trees were cut down across the U.S., they began to dwindle in numbers, and now are federally protected. If you find chimney swifts in your flue, you cannot light a fire while they are there, and you cannot have them removed. They will leave on their own after they nest (about 90 days total), and then you will need to schedule a chimney sweep to clean away any nesting materials, feathers, or carcasses.

While some homeowners choose to let these birds nest in the flue, it’s easier to prevent it. It saves you money, and it definitely prevents a few months of bird noises in your chimney.

The Chimney Cap Keeps the Fire In

As fire burns, the hot air carries the gases and particles up the chimney. An extremely hot fire can push sparks and flames up the chimney flue, sometimes all the way out the top. Chimney caps prevent sparks from flying out the chimney and igniting debris on the roof and nearby on the ground.

When it comes to chimneys, all the parts work together to keep it working correctly. If water is allowed into the chimney, it can damage the masonry from the inside out. If animals are allowed into the chimney, they can bring down efficiency, cause obstruction, and fire. When sparks fly out the chimney, the roof or nearby grasses and shrubs can ignite, resulting in wildfires that can travel miles, destroying homes and wildlife. Without a chimney cap, your home is at a higher risk of damage.

Dangers with Creosote in Your Chimney

An Inefficient Chimney

Chimneys become coated in soot and creosote when not cleaned regularly through routine chimney sweeps. A byproduct of a fire made up mostly of tar, creosote on the walls eventually leads to a buildup that slows airflow in the chimney. As the air slows, it cools faster, stalling in the flue, causing more and more creosote to settle onto the walls. Alone, creosote is not a hazard but over time, it builds up. When a fire is lit in the fireplace, the creosote is warmed to high temperatures that actually makes it boil. As it boils, moisture evaporates, leaving behind a hardened, concentrated tar fuel known as glazed creosote.

Glazed Creosote

Danger with Creosote in Your Chimney - Shreveport, LA - New Buck Chimney ServicesGlazed creosote is highly flammable, and extremely hard, which further interrupts the flow of air in the flue. When creosote comes into contact with a hot spark, it can ignite and will result in a catastrophic fire. Imagine dropping a match into a cup of gasoline. The fire is fierce and quick, and the release of this energy in a small space like a flue can be a big problem. For this reason, you should prevent and avoid a creosote buildup in your chimney. Once creosote has reached glazed buildup, chimney professionals have to use a chemical agent to transform it before it is removeable. Scraping this hardened material out of the chimney can damage your flue.

Routine Maintenance Prevents Creosote Buildup

An efficient chimney will produce less creosote. Keep your chimney system safe and efficient by following industry recommendations. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) both recommend routine chimney sweeps and annual inspections. New Buck Chimney Services offers chimney sweeps and inspections year-round.

Burning Proper Wood Prevents Creosote Buildup

Your chimney will be most efficient if you burn the proper fuel. Properly seasoned wood is the only thing that should burn in your fireplace, stove, or insert. Green wood, trash, clothes, or any other material will burn incompletely, lowering efficiency, but also creating more creosote to coat the flue walls. If you aren’t able to cut and store your own seasoned firewood, you can buy from a local source that sells it.

Using Your Fire Correctly Prevents Creosote Buildup

Despite the temptation of waking up to hot coals, it is not recommended to leave a fire smoldering overnight. Closing the damper on a fire and cutting off oxygen to let it smolder essentially burns the fuel incompletely on purpose. Routinely using this method is promoting creosote buildup in your chimney system.

Avoid a devestating creosote fire by using it properly, burning the right fuel, and hiring professionals for routine maintenance. Call New Buck to ask about our chimney services, and how we are dedicated to keeping homeowners in Shreveport safe.

What Causes a Chimney to Leak?

Fall is the time to begin thinking about your fireplace, and protecting your chimney from all types of winter damage. At New Buck Chimney Services, the most common winter damage we find and repair is water damage. It’s usually caused by a simple, preventable water leak, and the water damages your masonry from the inside out.

Chimney Leak Symptoms What Causes a Chimney to Leak Image - Shreveport LA - New Buck Chimney

By the time the average homeowner notices signs of a leak, there can be devastating damage hidden inside the chimney system. Learn the signs of a chimney leak and mark changes in your chimney.

  • Dripping sounds in the fireplace or chimney not only means there is water in the chimney but is likely pooling somewhere inside.
  • White stains on the chimney exterior. This indicates that water has moved through the masonry, leaving minerals on the outside.
  • A leaky ceiling in any part of your house is most likely a leaky chimney. The water enters by way of the chimney, then moves through floors and walls in the house. It pools at the lowest possible spot, then forms a leak. If you have a leak, and you have a chimney, your first call should be a chimney sweep.
  • Mildew/moldy odors coming from your chimney, fireplace, or stove means there is water in the chimney, and it’s growing mold.
  • Green tinted masonry inside the firebox. Moisture and mold will cause green growth on the bricks that gives them a green tint.

Causes

The most common cause of a chimney leak is a missing or damaged part of the chimney system. When homeowners neglect routine maintenance, it is easy to overlook a missing chimney cap, or shifted bit of flashing. This is why it’s vital to schedule routine maintenance with a certified professional.

  • Missing or Damaged Chimney Cap
    The cap is the cover that keeps water, wind, and animals out of the flue. Without the cap, whatever falls from the sky or creeps onto your roof can go right into your chimney flue.
  • Missing or Damaged Chimney Crown
    The crown covers the rest of the chimney, from the flue liner to the edge of the chimney. It should be designed with a slight slope so that water runs off, and should have an overhang so that water falls onto the roof instead of the masonry. Crowns should be assessed annually so that they can be sealed if cracks or damage is present.
  • Missing or Improperly Installed Flashing
    Flashing requires a great deal of knowledge for proper placement. The slope, roofing material, and climate all play a part in how the thin layers of metal are placed to prevent water from penetrating it. The flashing is placed at the intersection of the roof and chimney–the most vulnerable part of the whole system.
  • Damaged Masonry
    When a chimney is not properly maintained, water damage can cause masonry gaps and spalling. Natural occurrences like earthquakes and tornados can also cause masonry to shift and crack. When even a slight crack occurs, a leak can happen.

New Buck Chimney Services can fix your chimney leak. We don’t only repair the damage, but we solve the problem. Call new Buck Chimney Services and have your masonry professionally waterproofed for good measure.

We Are Warrior Horse

Here at New Buck Chimney Services we strive to be the #1 choice for comprehensive chimney care for our community of Shreveport. In order to offer the best services to keep our customers safe and comfortable year-round, we complete continued education and maintain memberships in the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Chimney Sweep Guild. These commitments to excellence take time and attention, but we still manage to put our passions to use with Warrior Horse.

Healing Warriors Through Warrior HorseWe Are Warrior Horse Image - Shreveport LA - New Buck Chimney

New Buck Chimney Services owner and operator, Kevin Russell put his passion for people to use when he saw a need in our world today. Together, Kevin and his wife brought this vision to life in Warrior Horse, a nonprofit corporation that offers unique equine therapy to veterans who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Longtime horse lovers, Kevin and Teresa, use their passion for horses and people to help veterans begin their recovery, reduce symptoms of depression, post-traumatic stress, and suicidal thoughts.

Warrior Horse Brought to Life

A plan or vision can be just that for years, but the vision the Russells have for Warrior Horse has been brought to life through grants and donations. Veterans can take part in three-day workshops that jumpstart the process of recovery from PTSD. To participate, veterans must have a PTSD diagnosis and have had some time since their tour of active duty. They are invited to participate at no financial cost to the veteran, but each workshop can only take five veterans, so it is an intimate and intensive equine-based therapy that sees results.

Equine Therapy

Equine-based therapy methods are highly useful and successful to individuals with mental illnesses and ailments. The results of PTSD on veterans is devastating, and leads to 22 deaths per day due to completed suicide. Warrior Horse is committed to bringing this number down. Through a “bonding process” between horse and man (or woman), the veteran is able to build trust with the horse. This process transfers to life once they leave Warrior Horse, to help the veteran build trust among friends and family and begin to heal in their own family and community.

Follow Warrior Horse

We are a new program of many designed to help veterans, but there are still veterans who aren’t recovering. There are still veterans lost every day to PTSD, and it is our goal to offer hope and healing to traumatized veterans through Warrior Horse. You can donate to this worthy cause through our website or through our Facebook page. If you’re a New Buck Chimney Services customer, every project that you schedule with us will benefit this unique organization that supports US veterans. Warrior Horse and New Buck thanks you for being a part of the community and for supporting this worthy cause.

To follow our story, stay up to date on our programs, and find out about upcoming workshops and events, follow us on Facebook. You can also contact Warrior Horse by email: Kevin@warriorhorse.net.

The Importance of an Insert Being Piped Up

There are many reasons to choose an insert for your winter fireplace. They are efficient, offer a beautiful flame, and require less maintenance than a traditional open fireplace. However, just like an installation, service, or repair, you should have your insert professionally installed. Only a CSIA certified chimney sweep knows the proper installation procedure and municipal codes to keep your family, your home, and community safe.

Inserts are Retrofitted Into an Existing FireboxThe Importance of an Insert Being Piped Up Image - Shreveport LA - New Buck Chimney

Inserts are a great way to revitalize a tired fireplace as long as the firebox is structurally sound. The insert is retrofitted into the existing firebox, and works as the firebox, connecting to the chimney above for ventilation.

Inserts Require Special Ventilation

Your insert may require some adjustments to the chimney in order to keep your family safe. The masonry chimney was built for the masonry fireplace. Since the insert is retrofitted into that fireplace, it is smaller than the existing firebox, meaning the chimney is likely too large to properly vent the smaller insert. Inserts are also extremely efficient, using much of the produced heat to heat the home. There needs to be a good balance of size, and heat to create the best vent for the fire. A professional chimney sweep will be able to advise you whether your existing chimney is too large for proper ventilation and can install an appropriate liner for your new system.

Using a Too-Large Chimney

If you choose to install an insert without also installing a liner for your chimney, the chimney will be too large for the insert. When the chimney is too large, the air will cool and stall before it is able to leave the chimney. When the air stalls in the chimney, the creosote, and soot settle on the surfaces of the flue. This causes buildup and corrosion on the masonry and can lead to costly repairs, fire, and more scheduled maintenance than you may like.

Safety First, Always

As CSIA certified chimney sweeps, we put the safety of our customers first. New Buck installs inserts and piping together as often as possible because we know that an inefficient system raises the risk of flue fire, damage, and waste. When you’re ready to discuss fireplace inserts, a fireplace and chimney expert can show you the options, and explain how your chimney works, and how piping will benefit your home in the long run. Click here to learn more about how your chimney works.

New Buck offers many models of fireplace inserts. Whether you choose a wood, pellet, or gas insert, you will need piping to create the safest and most efficient fire possible. All the models we sell and install are beautiful and eco-friendly. Ask us about how liners keep you safe when you call us today.
