What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Bayville home’s first line of protection against water breakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most important parts of a home’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Bayville home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other weakening. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place may slowly erode, making the roof prone to leaks.Chimney flashing is your last line of integrity from water damage.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Counter flashing surrounds 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 secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Expressway’s expert chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs usually cause additional issues to other parts of your structure – which will then include the growth of adverse mold and mildew… and that canthen cost you thousands more to remove. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you might see?

How Does Flashing Become Damaged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Bayville) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include harsh winds that will uplift the flashing material. Incorrectly installed flashing or awry caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a roof in Bayville may also inadvertently break the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is broken, it can quickly become a major issue if forgetten about. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs The Chimney may Need New Flashing:

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. 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 may pass the chimney flashing. Our team might visit your property and assess the integrity of the property’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to omit. Expressway regularly addresses chimney flashing that might no longer do its job in cushioning a residence from aggressive water. House materials can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials may be severely harmed by regular water seepage. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners might 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.
