Chimney Flashing For Bellview Beach


Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Bellview Beach home’s first line of defense against water infiltration. Chimney flashing is one of the most essential parts of a property’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Bellview Beach home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other weakening. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time might go a long way in water tightening your roof and cushioning your Bellview Beach home.

There are 3 layouts of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from your chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to impede water from leaking into the dwelling. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which forestalls water’s nature to pond on the roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. If water is allowed to flow down into your property through a gap caused by damages or missing flashing, there should be major cause for damage.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that may go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that begin to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see threatening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you might see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Flashing Pro

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Bellview Beach) 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 selections of flashing material). Workers on a roof in Bellview Beach could also inadvertently damage the flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it could quickly become a major issue if unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in fine working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next part that our pros would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be renovated Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can pass the chimney flashing. Our team can visit your property and assess the integrity of your structure’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be repaired. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to forget about. Chimney leakage typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage might be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring unhealthy mold. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets and if water is damaging down into your dwelling, the growth will be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
