Arrays Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing protects the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked sections in the sustainment of a residence. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other damage. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets past your chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from infiltrating your structure’s walls and ceilings.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to avert rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Counter flashing overlaps the top ridge gap of the L-flashing and is secured by embedding it into the chimney masonry. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration started by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Expressway’s trained chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see toxic mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you may see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Fully-trained Professional

Various factors could harm the flashing and initiate the need for either a flashing installation. Harm producers definitely include harsh winds that will uplift the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain types of flashing material). Workers on your roof in Amagansett could also inadvertently dislodge the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is harmed, it will quickly become a major issue if unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that the flashing is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs The Chimney may Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing
  • your flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • the flashing is now coming loose
  • your flashing is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing service done
  • The chimney is leaking water into your structure.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

A lot of the property’s chimneys in Amagansett are over 50 years old or more and failing. Most of the time this could be fixed by cutting out the old metal flashing with an angle grinder and replacing it with new chimney flashing. Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water might pass the chimney flashing. Chimney crown cracks are one of the preeminent reasons that chimney could leak past the chimney flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep the home’s roof secured. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that will no longer do its service in protecting a home from penetrating water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage may be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials can be severely damaged by regular water penetration. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your residence, the growth will be widespread and very costly to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
