What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Centerport dwelling’s first line of integrity against water leakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked places in the maintenance of a residence. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Centerport home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to avert your Centerport home from water problems and is recurrently installed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are frequently mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets past the chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from penetrating the structure’s walls and ceilings.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to impede rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Counter flashing covers the top ridge gap of the L-flashing and is secured by embedding it into the chimney masonry. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

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 can find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see toxic mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does Flashing Become Concerning?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Centerport) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that might uplift the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain layouts of flashing material). Workers on your home’s roof in Centerport may also inadvertently dislodge the flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it will quickly become a major issue if passed over. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s 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 manage the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

A lot of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first built. The next component that our pros would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be renovated Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be analyzed for cracks at least once a month. Expressway’s team could visit your property and assess the integrity of the residence’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be addressed. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team might replace all of the flashing around the areas in question and help to keep the home’s roof secured. Chimney harm most commonly begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials could be severely broken by regular water penetration. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners might not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
