The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Aquebogue home’s first line of protection against water problems. Chimney flashing is one of the most imperitive parts of a residence’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Aquebogue home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to forestall your Aquebogue residence from water problems and is sometimes placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place will slowly erode, making your roof sensitive to leaks.Replacing the chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time might go a long way in water tightening your roof and cushioning your Aquebogue property.

There are 3 designs of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to prevent water from leaking into the property. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stops water’s nature to pond on your roof. Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are designed to fit securely around the base of your chimney where it intersects with the roof. When installed exactly, chimney flashing can serve you well for many years.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that might go unnoticed to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our professional flashing techs may find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your residence’s roof, do you see detrimental mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water getting into the attic or into walls that you could see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Fully-trained Professional

Various parts might harm your home’s flashing and start the need for either a flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Imprecisely installed flashing or wrong caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the roof in Aquebogue can also inadvertently break the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements may eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps impede water harm from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that the flashing is kept in prime working order.

Whether you have a fireplace that is built with masonry stone or brick you’ll have to take care of the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Flashing Problems

A lot of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. The next thing that we would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be addressed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be scrutinized for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the obvious reasons that chimney might leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team may replace all of the flashing around the sections in question and help to keep the residence’s roof secured. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that will no longer do its job in securing a structure from aggressive water. Property materials also simply develop problems over time. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring detrimental mold. Mold is known to be risky to humans and pets and if water is eroding down into your residence, the growth could be widespread and very pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
