Arrays Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Eastport property’s first line of defense against water damage. Chimney flashing is one of the most forgotten areas in the prolongation of a property. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and causes a host of other damage. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place may slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks.Chimney flashing is your last line of protection from water damage.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to stall rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Counter flashing covers 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 secure your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration begun by excessive water aggression.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your dwelling 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 us immediately. Expressway’s professional chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. Leaky roofs oftentimes cause additional damage to other parts of your residence – which could then include the growth of dangerous mold and mildew… and that willthen cost the owner thousands more to address. If you smell mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an professional chimney flashing company such as Expressway to assess your structure’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Dedicated Pro

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Eastport) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include harsh winds that might free the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain selections of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many extreme winters and inclement summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements might eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps stop water damage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that your flashing is kept in prime working order.

Some Signs The Chimney could Need New Flashing:

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

A lot of the home’s chimneys in Eastport are over 50 years old or more and failing. Most of the time this could 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 checked for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the principal reasons that chimney will leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team can replace all of the flashing around the spots in question and help to keep the structure’s roof preserved. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that could no longer do its service in cushioning a dwelling from penetrating water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm may be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials may be severely broken by regular water invasion. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your structure, the growth may be widespread and very pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
