NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR ART VILLAGE, LONG ISLAND

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing preserves the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most imperitive parts of a property’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other problems. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing the chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and cushioning your Art Village property.

There are 3 styles of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stall water from leaking into the dwelling. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stalls water’s nature to pond on your roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. When installed properly, chimney flashing will serve you well for many years.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the residence’s chimneys in Art Village are over 50 years old or more and failing. Most of the time this can 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 can pass the chimney flashing. Chimney crown cracks are one of the principal reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing.
