The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your East End property’s first line of integrity against water problems. Chimney flashing is one of the most forgotten sections in the conservation of a property. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their East End home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other damage. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place could slowly erode, making the roof open to leaks. Warped or missing flashing could lead to a serious water leak and severe leakage to your East End residence and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 selections of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to prevent water from leaking into the residence. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which impedes water’s nature to pond on your roof. Counter flashing surrounds the top ridge gap of the L-flashing and is secured by embedding it into the chimney masonry. When installed precisely, chimney flashing will serve you well for many years.

New Chimney Flashing

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our highly-skilled flashing techs could find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see toxic mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you might see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Fully-trained Professional

Nuerous parts can harm the flashing and start the need for either a flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Imprecisely installed flashing or poor caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many severe winters and turbulent summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements may eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps hamper water problems 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 your flashing is kept in excellent 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 property’s chimneys in East End are over 50 years old or more and failing. 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be investigated for cracks at least once a month. Expressway’s team can visit the property and assess the integrity of your home’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be resealed. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep your property’s roof protected. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that can no longer do its service in defending a dwelling from eroding water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring noxious mold. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets and if water is damaging down into your home, the growth may be widespread and very pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
