NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR DEER PARK, LONG ISLAND

The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends the areas around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most pertinent parts of a structure’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. Roof flashing is installed to avert your Deer Park home from water leakage and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe leakage to your Deer Park dwelling and parts of the chimney.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to forestall rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. When installed exactly, chimney flashing will serve you well for many years.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our expert flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your home’s roof, do you see 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 can see?

How Does Flashing Become Worrisome?

A variety of issues can harm your flashing and cause the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your roof in Deer Park may also inadvertently break the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is leaky, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney May Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing
  • your flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • your flashing is now coming loose
  • your flashing is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • The chimney is leaking water into your dwelling.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Deer Park are over 50 years old or more and failing. 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 studied for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in defending a structure from aggressive water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials can be severely broken by regular water intrusion. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners 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.
