Chimney Flashing For East Northport


The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing cushions the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected areas in the sustainment of a property. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Roof flashing is installed to impede your East Northport dwelling from water problems and is normally installed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place can slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe damage to your East Northport home and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 designs of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stall water from leaking into the residence. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which averts water’s nature to pond on your roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. When installed exactly, chimney flashing might 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 could go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that begin to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Our professional flashing techs will 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? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you might see?

How Does Flashing Become Clogged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Northport) 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 layouts of flashing material). Workers on your roof in East Northport will also inadvertently dislodge the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements could eventually cause harm to your roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps avert water harm from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that your flashing is kept in optimum working order.

Chimney flashing should last about 20 years in East Northport’s harsh climate due to the amount of wear and tear begun by East Northport’s weather patterns.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next part that our pros would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be renovated Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water may pass the chimney flashing. Expressway’s team could visit your property and assess the integrity of your home’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be addressed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to omit. Chimney harm typically begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage may be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials may be severely deteriorated by regular water invasion. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets and if water is infiltrating down into your structure, the growth could be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
