Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing cushions the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most essential parts of a structure’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other harm. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place might slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks.Chimney flashing is the last line of protection from water damage.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to avert 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. When installed correctly, chimney flashing could serve you well for many years.

New Chimney Flashing

Following a storm, walk around your residence 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 your local flashing experts immediately. Expressway’s expert chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional issues to other parts of your structure – which could then include the growth of adverse mold and mildew… and that couldthen cost the owner thousands more to repair. If you see mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an expert chimney flashing chimney company such as Expressway to assess your dwelling’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Assessed?

Nuerous conditions can harm your home’s flashing and initiate the need for either a flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Rust issues (which are common with certain designs of flashing material). Workers on the roof in Bellerose Terrace might also inadvertently harm the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements may eventually cause harm to your roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps impede water damage from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. 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 could Need New Flashing:

  • your flashing is dislodged or missing
  • the flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • the 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 structure.

Chimney Flashing Problems

A lot of the chimneys flashing that our pros repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. Most of the time this will 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 can pass the chimney flashing. Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your property’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be repaired. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that will no longer do its job in protecting a structure from infiltrating water. House materials just simply develop problems over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials can be severely broken by regular water seepage. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets and if water is penetrating down into your structure, the growth might be widespread and very pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
