NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR BRENTWOOD, LONG ISLAND

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Brentwood dwelling’s first line of defense against water leakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most important parts of a structure’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Brentwood home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to avert your Brentwood residence from water problems and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney flashing is your last line of defense from water damage.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to avert rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are fashioned to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. If water is allowed to flow down into your structure through a gap caused by damages or missing flashing, there should be major cause for concern.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

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 dwelling that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your dwelling – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Looked At?

A variety of parts can harm the flashing and begin the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your roof in Brentwood may also inadvertently damage the flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that the flashing is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney May Need New Flashing:

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. The next thing that our chimney experts 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. Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Dwelling materials also simply just develop harm over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp areas are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
