Chimney Flashing For Brentwood


The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing preserves the sections around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected areas in the preservation of a home. 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 begins a host of other problems. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place might slowly erode, making your roof wide open to leaks. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe damage to your Brentwood structure and parts of the chimney.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to stop 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 made to to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. If water is allowed to flow down into your residence through a gap caused by broken or missing flashing, there should be major cause for concern.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that will go unnoticed to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our expert flashing techs can find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see harmful mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an expert chimney flashing company such as Expressway to assess your structure’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Dedicated Pro

Many things could harm your home’s flashing and initiate the need for either a flashing installation. Problem producers definitely include crazy winds that will uplift the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain styles of flashing material). Workers on your roof in Brentwood will also inadvertently break the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is harmed, it could quickly become a major issue if omitted. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in efficient working order.

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Some of the residence’s chimneys in Brentwood 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 might pass the chimney flashing. Chimney crown cracks are one of the obvious reasons that chimney might leak past the chimney flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team may replace all of the flashing around the spots in question and help to keep your home’s roof defended. Chimney leakage typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage may be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is most commonly in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring dangerous mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners may 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.
