NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR COBB, LONG ISLAND

Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Cobb property’s first line of defense against water breakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most forgotten spots in the upkeep of a property. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Cobb home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes harmful, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other harm. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place will slowly erode, making your roof wide open to leaks.Chimney flashing is your last line of defense from water damage.

There are 3 systems of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from your chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to hamper water from leaking into the dwelling. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which hampers water’s nature to pond on your roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. 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 concern.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Following a storm, walk around your structure 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 trained chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your home – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to remove. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Highly-skilled Pro

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Cobb) 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. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your roof in Cobb may also inadvertently harm the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is damaged, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in good working order.

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the property’s chimneys in Cobb are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next thing that our chimney experts 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 the residence’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be fixed. 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 damage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely broken by regular water seepage. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
