Styles Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most imperitive parts of a dwelling’s chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Bellport home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other harm. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time can go a long way in water tightening your roof and protecting your Bellport home.

There are 3 arrays 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 property. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stalls water’s nature to pond on your roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. If water is allowed to flow down into the dwelling through a gap initiated by damages 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. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you observe mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an highly-skilled chimney flashing company such as Expressway to look at 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?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Bellport) 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. Rust issues (which are common with certain types of flashing material). Workers on the roof in Bellport could also inadvertently harm the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements can eventually cause harm to your roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps stop water harm from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that your flashing is kept in prime working order.

Chimney flashing should last about 20 years in Bellport’s inclement climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather patterns.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Some of the dwelling’s chimneys in Bellport are over 50 years old or more and failing. Most of the time this could 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. Chimney crown cracks are one of the principal reasons that chimney may leak past the chimney flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team may replace all of the flashing around the spots in question and help to keep the residence’s roof secured. Chimney leakage typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Residence materials can simply develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp spots are perfect for growing and harboring threatening mold. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners 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.
