Chimney Flashing For Brookhaven


Selections Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing secures the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof joins the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most important parts of a property’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other problems. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place might slowly erode, making your roof susceptible to leaks.Replacing the chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time might go a long way in water tightening your roof and protecting your Brookhaven home.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that might go unnoticed to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our highly-skilled flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional issues to other parts of your structure – which may then include the growth of toxic mold and mildew… and that mightthen cost the owner thousands more to address. If you see mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call 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.

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Looked At?

Various elements can harm your home’s flashing and begin the need for either a flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Incorrectly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many harsh winters and severe summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements might eventually cause leaks to the roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps stall water harm from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that your flashing is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney might Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing
  • the flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • the flashing is now coming loose
  • your 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.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Some of the structure’s chimneys in Brookhaven are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next factor that our technicians 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 inspected for cracks at least once a month. Expressway’s team could visit the property and assess the integrity of the residence’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be repaired. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team might replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep the structure’s roof secured. Chimney harm usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm might be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be severely damaged by regular water intrusion. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers might 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.
