Styles Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends the areas around the chimney from leaking water where the roof joins the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most essential parts of a property’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other issues. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place could slowly erode, making your roof vulnerable to leaks.Chimney flashing is the last line of protection from water damage.

There are 3 styles of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to hamper water from leaking into the structure. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which forestalls water’s nature to pond on the roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. 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.

New Chimney Flashing

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that may go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your residence’s roof, do you see dangerous 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 could see?

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Looked At?

Multiple factors may harm the flashing and cause the need for either a flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Incorrectly installed flashing or bad caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the roof in East Quogue can also inadvertently break the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements might eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps stall water damage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that the flashing is kept in good working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney might Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing
  • the flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • your flashing is now coming dislodged
  • the flashing is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing service done
  • The chimney is leaking water into your residence.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Some of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next component that we would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be fixed Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be checked for cracks at least once a month. Our team can visit your property and assess the integrity of your dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be repaired. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to neglect. Expressway regularly fixes chimney flashing that will no longer do its job in protecting a structure from penetrating water. Dwelling materials can simply develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other home building materials might be severely deteriorated by regular water infiltration. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners could 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.
