Arrays Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends the sections around the chimney from leaking water where the roof abuts the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected places in the conservation of a property. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Roof flashing is installed to hamper your East Meadow property from water leakage and is generally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place will slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks. Warped or missing flashing may lead to a serious water leak and severe damage to your East Meadow structure and parts of the chimney.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to avert 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 made to to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration begun by excessive water aggression.

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that will go unnoticed to a novice eye. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our professional flashing techs could find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs sometimes cause additional problems to other parts of your residence – which could then include the growth of adverse mold and mildew… and that canthen cost you thousands more to remove. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you could see?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Meadow) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include turbulent winds that might move the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or defective caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many severe winters and severe summers. If your chimney’s flashing is problematic, it can quickly become a major issue if neglected. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in optimum working order.

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Some of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. The next thing that our pros would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be addressed Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water might pass the chimney flashing. Chimney crown cracks are one of the preeminent reasons that chimney could leak past the chimney flashing. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to ignore. Chimney damage typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Property materials can simply develop leakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials will be severely deteriorated by regular water penetration. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets and if water is eroding down into your property, the growth could be widespread and very pricey to remedy.
