Chimney Flashing For Cold Spring Harbor

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Cold Spring Harbor property’s first line of defense against water problems. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked sections in the conservation of a property. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Cold Spring Harbor home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to stop your Cold Spring Harbor property from water damage and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place will slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe problems to your Cold Spring Harbor dwelling and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 selections of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to prevent water from leaking into the home. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stalls 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 defend your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

New Chimney Flashing

Following a storm, walk around your home and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our trained flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Professional

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Cold Spring Harbor) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a roof in Cold Spring Harbor may also inadvertently damage the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause leaks to the roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps avert water problems from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that your flashing is kept in excellent working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be assessed for cracks at least once a month. Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be fixed. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep the dwelling’s roof protected. Chimney leakage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Property materials also simply just develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water invasion. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers 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.
