NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR EAST ROCKAWAY, LONG ISLAND

Selections Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your East Rockaway dwelling’s first line of defense against water breakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most important parts of a residence’s chimney. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their East Rockaway home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins 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 the last line of defense from water damage.

There are 3 types of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stop water from leaking into the property. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which prevents water’s nature to pond on your roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Fully-trained Professional

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Rockaway) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on a roof in East Rockaway may also inadvertently harm the flashing. If the chimney’s flashing is broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that your flashing is kept in efficient working order.

Some Signs The Chimney May Need New Flashing:

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

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. The next part that we would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be corrected Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be inspected for cracks at least once a month. Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be fixed. If the chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the flashing around the spots in question and help to keep the property’s roof secured. Chimney leakage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Dwelling materials also simply just develop leakage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp areas are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
