The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing secures the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked spots in the preservation of a dwelling. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Coram home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other leaks. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are most commonly mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets past the chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from penetrating 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. When installed properly, chimney flashing may serve you well for many years.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling 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 residence that begin to leak, call us immediately. Our trained flashing techs may find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see adverse mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you might see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Dedicated Pro

A variety of elements might harm the flashing and start the need for either a flashing installation. Damage producers definitely include harsh winds that can displace the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain types of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many bad winters and severe summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements may eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps stop water harm 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 excellent working order.

Whether you have a fireplace that is built with masonry stone or brick you’ll have to sustain the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next component that our chimney experts would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be addressed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be tested for cracks at least once a month. Expressway’s team could visit your property and assess the integrity of your dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be addressed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly fixes chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in cushioning a dwelling from aggressive water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage might be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp areas are perfect for growing and harboring toxic mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
