NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR EAST HAMPTON, LONG ISLAND

Styles Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing secures the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected spots in the preservation of a property. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other damage. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place will slowly erode, making the roof open to leaks. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe leakage to your East Hampton property and parts of the chimney.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to impede 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. If water is allowed to flow down into the structure through a gap caused by broken or missing flashing, there should be major cause for alarm.

New Chimney Flashing

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Expressway’s trained chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your home – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to repair. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney flashing chimney contractor such as Expressway to inspect your dwelling’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Professional

A variety of things can harm the flashing and begin the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that your flashing is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs The Chimney May Need New Flashing:

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

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first built.

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. Structural materials also simply just develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring mold.
