NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR BALDWIN, LONG ISLAND

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Baldwin property’s first line of defense against water damage. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected areas in the preservation of a structure. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Roof flashing is installed to impede your Baldwin home from water problems and is recurrently placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place may slowly erode, making the roof vulnerable to leaks.Chimney flashing is the last line of defense from water damage.

There are 3 types 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 structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which impedes water’s nature to pond on the roof. 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 defend your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration initiated by excessive water aggression.

New Chimney Flashing

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

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Assessed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Baldwin) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Rust issues (which are common with certain selections of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many harsh winters and crazy summers. If the chimney’s flashing is problematic, it may quickly become a major issue if forgetten about. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that the flashing is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney may Need New Flashing:

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

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next component that our chimney experts would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be fixed Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water will pass the chimney flashing. Expressway’s team could visit the property and assess the integrity of your dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be addressed. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team could replace all of the flashing around the sections in question and help to keep your structure’s roof defended. Chimney damage generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm could be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring harmful mold. Mold is known to be risky to humans and pets and if water is aggressive down into your dwelling, the growth might be widespread and very costly to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
