Chimney Flashing For Cobb


Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing cushions the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected areas in the preservation of a dwelling. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other damage. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are generally mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets past the chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from infiltrating your structure’s walls and ceilings.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to prevent rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. If water is allowed to flow down into your home through a gap caused by harmed or missing flashing, there should be major cause for worry.

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that could go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that begin to leak, call us immediately. Our expert flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs sometimes cause additional problems to other parts of your structure – which may then include the growth of toxic mold and mildew… and that maythen cost the owner thousands more to repair. If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an expert chimney flashing company such as Expressway to look at your dwelling’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Leay?

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. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Imprecisely installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your home’s roof in Cobb could also inadvertently break the flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it could quickly become a major issue if neglected. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that the flashing is kept in good working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney could Need New Flashing:

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the residence’s chimneys in Cobb are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next component that we would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be addressed Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water might pass the chimney flashing. Expressway’s team can visit the property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be replaced. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team could replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep your structure’s roof preserved. Chimney problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Dwelling materials just simply develop leakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials could be severely broken by regular water seepage. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets and if water is eroding down into your structure, the growth may be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
