Chimney Flashing For Cold Spring Harbor


The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Cold Spring Harbor residence’s main line of integrity against water infiltration. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked spots in the preservation of a property. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Cold Spring Harbor home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to prevent your Cold Spring Harbor residence from water leakage and is oftentimes laid down around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place might slowly erode, making the roof prone to leaks. If water gets past your chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from aggressive the structure’s walls and ceilings.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to stall rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are designed to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to secure the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration initiated by excessive water intrusion.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that will go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that begin to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our professional flashing techs could find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs oftentimes cause additional damage to other parts of your home – which may then include the growth of dangerous mold and mildew… and that couldthen cost you thousands more to remove. If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, reach an highly-skilled chimney flashing chimney company such as Expressway to inspect your home’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Professional

Multiple conditions could harm your home’s flashing and cause the need for either a flashing installation. Problem producers definitely include harsh winds that may displace the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain types of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many extreme winters and inclement summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements may eventually cause harm to the roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps avert water leakage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that the flashing is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney could Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing
  • your flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • your 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 structure.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next factor that our technicians would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be repaired Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water will pass the chimney flashing. Our team can visit your property and assess the integrity of the property’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be replaced. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to forget about. Expressway regularly addresses chimney flashing that will no longer do its service in protecting a home from aggressive water. Residence materials are known to simply develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other property building materials could be severely harmed by regular water aggression. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets and if water is eroding down into your property, the growth will be widespread and very pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
