The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing preserves the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked sections in the sustainment of a home. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Dering Harbor home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other weakening. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place may slowly erode, making the roof sensitive to leaks.Replacing your chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time may go a long way in water tightening the roof and securing your Dering Harbor property.

There are 3 systems of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to forestall water from leaking into the property. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which impedes water’s nature to pond on the roof. Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are engineered to to fit securely around the base of your chimney where it intersects with the roof. When installed exactly, chimney flashing can serve you well for many years.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

How Does Flashing Become Clogged?

Various conditions can harm the flashing and cause the need for either a flashing repair. Problem producers definitely include bad winds that can dislodge the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain layouts of flashing material). Workers on your roof in Dering Harbor could also inadvertently harm the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps stall water leakage from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. 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.
