The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most pertinent parts of a dwelling’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Bayport home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to prevent your Bayport dwelling from water damage and is over and over placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place might slowly erode, making the roof sensitive to leaks.Replacing the chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time can go a long way in water tightening your roof and protecting your Bayport dwelling.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to stall 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 the home through a gap begun by broken or missing flashing, there should be major cause for alarm.

New Chimney Flashing

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call your local flashing experts immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your residence’s roof, do you see risky mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth?

How Does Flashing Become Clogged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Bayport) 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. Imprecisely installed flashing or poor caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a roof in Bayport could also inadvertently harm the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if forgetten about. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s 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 protect the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the property’s chimneys in Bayport are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next factor that we 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 could pass the chimney flashing. Our team might visit the property and assess the integrity of the residence’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be addressed. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team can replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep the property’s roof secured. Chimney problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring toxic mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners will not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
