Chimney Flashing For Centre Island


What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing protects the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most essential parts of a structure’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Roof flashing is installed to impede your Centre Island structure from water damage and is normally laid down around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place might slowly erode, making your roof prone to leaks. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe harm to your Centre Island property and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 layouts of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from your chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stop water from leaking into the structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which prevents water’s nature to pond on your roof. Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are made to to fit securely around the base of your chimney where it intersects with the roof. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration begun by excessive water aggression.

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that will go unnoticed to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs sometimes cause additional damage to other parts of your home – which will then include the growth of unhealthy mold and mildew… and that maythen cost the owner thousands more to repair. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an expert chimney flashing chimney contractor such as Expressway to assess your dwelling’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Worrisome?

Various elements might harm the flashing and initiate the need for either a flashing repair. Harm producers definitely include turbulent winds that may dislodge the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain styles of flashing material). Workers on the roof in Centre Island can also inadvertently break the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements could eventually cause harm to your roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps hamper water harm from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in excellent working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney might Need New Flashing:

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first built. The next thing that our pros would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be fixed 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 principal reasons that chimney might leak past the chimney flashing. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to brush off. Expressway regularly fixes chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in securing a home from damaging water. Residence materials also simply develop leakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials might be severely deteriorated by regular water penetration. Mold is known to be dangerous to humans and pets and if water is damaging down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
