Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends the sections around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most imperitive parts of a residence’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Roof flashing is installed to prevent your Center Moriches structure from water problems and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Roof 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 eroding the structure’s walls and ceilings.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to forestall rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” 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 structure through a gap caused by broken or missing flashing, there should be major cause for leaks.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

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. Expressway’s expert chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an highly-skilled chimney flashing chimney contractor such as Expressway to inspect your residence’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Clogged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Center Moriches) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain designs of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s flashing is harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in excellent working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Center Moriches are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next element that our technicians would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be corrected Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can pass the chimney flashing. Chimney crown cracks are one of the obvious reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the flashing around the sections in question and help to keep your property’s roof secured. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in defending a property from eroding water. Property materials also simply just develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be severely harmed by regular water seepage. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may 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.
