NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR ATLANTIC BEACH, LONG ISLAND

The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends 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 home’s chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Atlantic Beach home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to forestall your Atlantic Beach home from water problems and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe leakage to your Atlantic Beach residence and parts of the chimney.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. If water is allowed to flow down into your home through a gap caused by harmed or missing flashing, there should be major cause for leaks.

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 problems that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call us immediately. Our highly-skilled flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your dwelling – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to address. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, reach an professional chimney flashing company such as Expressway to inspect your dwelling’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Concerning?

A variety of conditions can harm your flashing and begin the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s flashing is damaged, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in efficient working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Atlantic Beach 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. Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your property’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be addressed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in securing a dwelling from eroding water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp spots are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
