Chimney Flashing For Atlantic Beach


Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing preserves the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof joins the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected sections in the prolongation of a structure. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other weakening. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe damage to your Atlantic Beach dwelling and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 selections 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. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration started by excessive water penetration.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that begin to leak, call us immediately. Our professional flashing techs could find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see harmful mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an highly-skilled chimney flashing chimney contractor such as Expressway to look at your structure’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Dedicated Pro

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Atlantic Beach) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include bad winds that may displace the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain designs of flashing material). Workers on the roof in Atlantic Beach will also inadvertently dislodge the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements can eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps impede water damage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that your flashing is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney could Need New Flashing:

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

A lot of the dwelling’s chimneys in Atlantic Beach are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next part that our chimney experts 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 analyzed for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the leading reasons that chimney could leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team may replace all of the flashing around the areas in question and help to keep the structure’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly addresses chimney flashing that might no longer do its service in securing a residence from aggressive water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage could be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials could be severely damaged by regular water seepage. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, customers might not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
