Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your East Hills home’s first line of integrity against water leakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most pertinent parts of a dwelling’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their East Hills 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 problems. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place may slowly erode, making your roof wide open to leaks. Warped or missing flashing might lead to a serious water leak and severe damage to your East Hills property and parts of the chimney.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” 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. If water is allowed to flow down into the residence through a gap caused by harmed or missing flashing, there should be major cause for worry.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our professional flashing techs can find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your residence’s roof, do you see unhealthy mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you observe mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an expert chimney flashing company such as Expressway to look at your home’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Looked At?

Multiple issues may harm your home’s flashing and start the need for either a flashing installation. Problem producers definitely include extreme winds that may move the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain types of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many harsh winters and extreme summers. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it can quickly become a major issue if unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that the flashing is kept in good working order.

Chimney flashing should last about 20 years in East Hills’s extreme climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather patterns.

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next element that we would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be repaired Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can pass the chimney flashing. Expressway’s team could visit the property and assess the integrity of your residence’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be addressed. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team may replace all of the flashing around the sections in question and help to keep your residence’s roof defended. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that will no longer do its job in securing a property from damaging 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 structure building materials can be severely broken by regular water aggression. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers will 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.
