Chimney Flashing For Bridgehampton


The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing protects the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked spots in the conservation of a dwelling. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Bridgehampton home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other issues. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets past the chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding the structure’s walls and ceilings.

There are 3 systems of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to forestall water from leaking into the structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which averts 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 preserve your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration initiated by excessive water infiltration.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our expert flashing techs may find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see harmful mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an fully-trained chimney flashing chimney 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.

How Does Flashing Become Leay?

Several conditions could harm the flashing and start the need for either a flashing installation. Damage producers definitely include bad winds that will uplift the flashing material. Inexactly installed flashing or wrong caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your roof in Bridgehampton will also inadvertently break the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is problematic, it may quickly become a major issue if omitted. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that your flashing is kept in good working order.

Whether you have a fireplace that is built with masonry stone or brick you’ll have to manage the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

A lot of the property’s chimneys in Bridgehampton are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next thing that our pros would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be addressed 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 leading reasons that chimney might leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team could replace all of the flashing around the spots in question and help to keep the property’s roof defended. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that might no longer do its service in preserving a home from eroding water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm could be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials may be severely deteriorated by regular water aggression. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets and if water is infiltrating down into your dwelling, the growth may be widespread and very pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
