What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing cushions the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most pertinent parts of a dwelling’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Brookhaven home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other issues. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place could slowly erode, making the roof vulnerable to leaks. If water gets past the chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from eroding 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 residence. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which averts water’s nature to pond on the roof. Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are engineered to to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. When installed properly, chimney flashing will serve you well for many years.

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. Our trained flashing techs can find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see sickening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney flashing chimney company such as Expressway to look at your home’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Dedicated Pro

Several parts will harm your home’s flashing and cause the need for either a flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Imprecisely installed flashing or awry caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a roof in Brookhaven can also inadvertently damage the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements could eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps forestall water problems from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that the flashing is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs The Chimney could Need New Flashing:

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Some of the home’s chimneys in Brookhaven 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be assessed for cracks at least once a month. Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be addressed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that will no longer do its service in securing a home from infiltrating water. Structural materials can simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp areas are perfect for growing and harboring threatening mold. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your dwelling, the growth could be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
