NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR EAST NORTHPORT, LONG ISLAND

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your East Northport residence’s first line of defense against water problems. Chimney flashing is one of the most imperitive parts of a property’s chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their East Northport 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. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Chimney flashing is your last line of defense from water damage.

There are 3 selections of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to forestall water from leaking into the residence. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which averts water’s nature to pond on the roof. Counter flashing surrounds 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 your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

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 professional flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your residence’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Flashing Pro

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 types 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 your flashing is kept in excellent working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the chimneys flashing that our pros repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. Most of the time this can 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 preeminent reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the flashing around the spots in question and help to keep the structure’s roof cushioned. Chimney problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. House materials also simply just develop breakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water penetration. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
