NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR BELLVIEW BEACH, LONG ISLAND

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Bellview Beach dwelling’s first line of defense against water problems. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked areas in the preservation of a structure. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other issues. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place will slowly erode, making your roof vulnerable to leaks. If water gets past the chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from aggressive your structure’s walls and ceilings.

There are 3 types of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stop water from leaking into the structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stalls water’s nature to pond on the roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling 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 expert chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Dedicated 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 layouts of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s flashing is damaged, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that your flashing is kept in good working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney May Need New Flashing:

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our pros repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first built. The next component that we would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be corrected Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be analyzed for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the obvious reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the flashing around the sections in question and help to keep your structure’s roof defended. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in preserving a residence from damaging water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets and if water is aggressive down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
