NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR CARLE PLACE, LONG ISLAND

Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing preserves the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected sections in the prolongation of a property. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other harm. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets past your chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from aggressive the structure’s walls and ceilings.

There are 3 selections of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to avert water from leaking into the home. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which impedes water’s nature to pond on the roof. Counter flashing overlaps the top ridge gap of the L-flashing and is secured by embedding it into the chimney masonry. If water is allowed to flow down into the property through a gap caused by damages or missing flashing, there should be major cause for worry.

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Looked At?

A variety of issues can harm your flashing and start the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Rust issues (which are common with certain arrays of flashing material). Workers on a roof in Carle Place may also inadvertently break the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed.

Some Signs The Chimney May Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Carle Place are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next element that we 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. Expressway’s team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your home’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. Chimney leakage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be risky to humans and pets and if water is infiltrating down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very costly to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
