NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR CENTRE ISLAND, LONG ISLAND

Selections Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing protects the sections around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected places in the preservation of a home. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Roof flashing is installed to stall your Centre Island residence from water damage and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe leakage to your Centre Island property and parts of the chimney.

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 forestall water from leaking into the structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stops water’s nature to pond on the roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call your local flashing experts immediately. Our trained flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does Flashing Become Blocked?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Centre Island) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s flashing is leaky, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in optimum working order.

Chimney flashing should last about 20 years in Centre Island’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by Centre Island’s weather patterns.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the chimneys flashing that our chimney experts repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first built. Most of the time this can be fixed by cutting out the old metal flashing with an angle grinder and replacing it with new chimney flashing. 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 can leak past the chimney flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the flashing around the sections in question and help to keep the dwelling’s roof protected. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in protecting a structure from eroding water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, customers 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.
