Arrays Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your East Marion structure’s first line of integrity against water leakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected places in the upkeep of a home. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other issues. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place may slowly erode, making your roof open to leaks. If water gets past your chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from leaking your structure’s walls and ceilings.

There are 3 types of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from your chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to impede water from leaking into the residence. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which hampers water’s nature to pond on your roof. Counter flashing covers the top ridge gap of the L-flashing and is secured by embedding it into the chimney masonry. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration begun by excessive water aggression.

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

How Does Flashing Become Damaged?

A variety of things could harm the flashing and begin the need for either a flashing repair. Leakage producers definitely include turbulent winds that can dislodge the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain types of flashing material). Workers on the roof in East Marion may also inadvertently dislodge the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is problematic, it will quickly become a major issue if neglected. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in fine working order.

Whether you have a fireplace that is built with masonry stone or brick you’ll have to sustain the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Some of the home’s chimneys in East Marion are over 50 years old or more and failing. Most of the time this might be fixed by cutting out the old metal flashing with an angle grinder and replacing it with new chimney flashing. Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can pass the chimney flashing. Chimney crown cracks are one of the leading reasons that chimney might leak past the chimney flashing. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to pass over. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that might no longer do its service in securing a structure from aggressive water. Residence materials can simply develop leakage over time. Mold growth – which is generally in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring adverse mold. Mold is known to be risky to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your property, the growth could be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
