Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing protects the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked places in the sustainment of a property. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other damage. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place will slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks.Chimney flashing is the last line of defense from water damage.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to hamper 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. When installed exactly, chimney flashing will serve you well for many years.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our expert flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional issues to other parts of your home – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to remove. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an expert chimney flashing company 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 Dedicated Pro

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Massapequa) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Rust issues (which are common with certain styles of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s flashing is leaky, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. 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.

Some Signs Your Chimney May Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing
  • your flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • the flashing is now coming loose
  • your 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 structure.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. The next element that we would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be renovated Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be investigated for cracks at least once a month. Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be fixed. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the flashing around the areas in question and help to keep your residence’s roof defended. Expressway regularly addresses chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in preserving a dwelling from penetrating water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners may 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.
