Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Bellmore structure’s first line of protection against water damage. Chimney flashing is one of the most important parts of a residence’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Bellmore home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to hamper your Bellmore dwelling from water leakage and is many a time installed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing flashing may lead to a serious water leak and severe leakage to your Bellmore dwelling and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 layouts of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to avert water from leaking into the structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stalls water’s nature to pond on your roof. Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are designed to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

New Chimney Flashing

Following a storm, walk around your structure 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 structure that begin to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our professional flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional issues to other parts of your home – which may then include the growth of noxious mold and mildew… and that mightthen cost the owner thousands more to remove. If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an highly-skilled chimney flashing company such as Expressway to assess your dwelling’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Highly-skilled Pro

Various elements can harm the flashing and cause the need for either a flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Imprecisely installed flashing or wrong caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a roof in Bellmore could also inadvertently dislodge the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause weakening to the roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps stop water damage from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that the flashing is kept in good working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney might Need New Flashing:

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the chimneys flashing that our chimney experts repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially 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 might pass the chimney flashing. Our team may visit your property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to evade. Expressway regularly addresses chimney flashing that will no longer do its service in protecting a property from penetrating water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage could be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials could be severely damaged by regular water penetration. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners will not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
