What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Cutchogue property’s first line of defense against water infiltration. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected places in the prolongation of a property. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other leaks. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place may slowly erode, making your roof susceptible to leaks. Warped or missing flashing will lead to a serious water leak and severe problems to your Cutchogue dwelling and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 designs of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stall water from leaking into the structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which averts water’s nature to pond on your roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration initiated by excessive water penetration.

New Chimney Flashing

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 structure that start to leak, call your local flashing experts immediately. Our professional flashing techs may find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs over and over cause additional problems to other parts of your home – which may then include the growth of adverse mold and mildew… and that couldthen cost you thousands more to address. If you see mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an fully-trained chimney flashing chimney company such as Expressway to assess your residence’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Worrisome?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Cutchogue) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include severe winds that could displace the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain layouts of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many severe winters and inclement summers. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it could quickly become a major issue if unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that the flashing is kept in efficient working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

A lot of the chimneys flashing that our chimney experts repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first built. Most of the time this may 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. Chimney crown cracks are one of the leading reasons that chimney might leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team may replace all of the flashing around the spots in question and help to keep your dwelling’s roof preserved. Expressway regularly fixes chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in cushioning a dwelling from aggressive water. Property materials also simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring toxic mold. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets and if water is infiltrating down into your residence, the growth will be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
