NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR EAST PATCHOGUE, LONG ISLAND

Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your East Patchogue dwelling’s first line of defense against water leakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most imperitive parts of a property’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Roof flashing is installed to avert your East Patchogue residence from water problems and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing the chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and preserving your East Patchogue structure.

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 fashioned to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. If water is allowed to flow down into the home through a gap caused by leaking or missing flashing, there should be major cause for worry.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s expert chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, reach an expert chimney flashing chimney company such as Expressway to look at your dwelling’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Inspected?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Patchogue) 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). Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If your chimney’s flashing is harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in optimum working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney May Need New Flashing:

  • your 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 dwelling.

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally 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. Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be resealed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney leakage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp spots are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
