Styles Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing cushions the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof joins the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected sections in the upkeep of a dwelling. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their East Williston home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to stop your East Williston dwelling from water damage and is sometimes placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place can slowly erode, making the roof prone to leaks.Chimney flashing is your last line of defense from water damage.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Counter flashing surrounds the top ridge gap of the L-flashing and is secured by embedding it into the chimney masonry. If water is allowed to flow down into the dwelling through a gap started 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 structure that start to leak, call Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your residence’s roof, do you see sickening mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an professional chimney flashing company such as Expressway to assess your residence’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Fully-trained Professional

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in East Williston) 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 selections of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many crazy winters and turbulent summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements may eventually cause damage to your roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps impede water problems from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that your flashing is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney may Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing
  • the flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • the flashing is now coming free
  • the 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 residence’s chimneys in East Williston are over 50 years old or more and failing. 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be inspected for cracks at least once a month. Expressway’s team can visit your property and assess the integrity of your structure’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. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that could no longer do its service in protecting a home from aggressive water. Structural materials are known to simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is frequently in dark, undrafted and damp spots are perfect for growing and harboring detrimental mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers could 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.
