What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Bellerose property’s first line of defense against water problems. Chimney flashing is one of the most important parts of a structure’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Bellerose home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes harmful, 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 could slowly erode, making your roof prone to leaks. Warped or missing flashing might lead to a serious water leak and severe harm to your Bellerose dwelling and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 designs of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to prevent water from leaking into the structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which forestalls water’s nature to pond on your roof. Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are engineered to to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. If water is allowed to flow down into the structure through a gap initiated by leaking or missing flashing, there should be major cause for leaks.

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 dwelling that begin to leak, call your local flashing experts immediately. Expressway’s expert chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see adverse mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an professional chimney flashing company such as Expressway to look at your structure’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Leay?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Bellerose) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include severe winds that might displace the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain selections of flashing material). Workers on your home’s roof in Bellerose may also inadvertently harm the flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is damaged, it can quickly become a major issue if ignored. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that the flashing is kept in excellent working order.

Chimney flashing should last about 20 years in Bellerose’s extreme climate due to the amount of wear and tear initiated by our weather patterns.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

A lot of the chimneys flashing that our chimney experts repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first built. Most of the time this might be fixed by cutting out the old metal flashing with an angle grinder and replacing it with new chimney flashing. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be investigated for cracks at least once a month. Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of your residence’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be resealed. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team may replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep your dwelling’s roof cushioned. Chimney leakage generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Home materials also simply develop leakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be severely broken by regular water aggression. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners could 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.
