What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Commack residence’s first line of protection against water breakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most essential parts of a home’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Roof flashing is installed to impede your Commack home from water damage and is often placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney flashing is your last line of defense from water damage.

There are 3 types of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from your chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to impede water from leaking into the residence. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which averts water’s nature to pond on the roof. Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are fashioned to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. If water is allowed to flow down into your dwelling through a gap begun by harmed or missing flashing, there should be major cause for concern.

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Commack) 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. Rust issues (which are common with certain selections of flashing material). Workers on your home’s roof in Commack may also inadvertently damage the flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it could quickly become a major issue if forgetten about. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that your flashing is kept in optimum working order.

Chimney flashing should last about 20 years in Commack’s bad climate due to the amount of wear and tear begun by Commack’s weather patterns.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Some of the residence’s chimneys in Commack are over 50 years old or more and failing. Most of the time this might 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 might pass the chimney flashing. Expressway’s team could visit your property and assess the integrity of the dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be repaired. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney harm typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems may be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials will be severely harmed by regular water invasion. Mold is known to be risky to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your home, the growth will be widespread and very costly to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
