Layouts Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing protects the sections around the chimney from leaking water where the roof joins the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked sections in the conservation of a structure. 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 initiates a host of other harm. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place can slowly erode, making your roof wide open to leaks.Replacing the chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and cushioning your Elmont structure.

There are 3 styles of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from your chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to prevent water from leaking into the residence. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which forestalls water’s nature to pond on your roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. When installed precisely, chimney flashing may serve you well for many years.

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that will go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call your local flashing experts immediately. Our expert flashing techs could find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see harmful mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you observe mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, reach 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.

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Assessed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Elmont) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include severe winds that might move the flashing material. Imprecisely installed flashing or bad caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many extreme winters and severe summers. If your chimney’s flashing is harmed, it may quickly become a major issue if neglected. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that the flashing is kept in fine working order.

Whether you have a fireplace that is built with masonry stone or brick you’ll have to sustain the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Flashing Problems

A lot of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next element that our chimney experts would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be repaired Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water may pass the chimney flashing. Chimney crown cracks are one of the prominent reasons that chimney will leak past the chimney flashing. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to slight. Expressway regularly replaces chimney flashing that may no longer do its service in cushioning a dwelling from eroding water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the damage might be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials will be severely damaged by regular water seepage. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, clients could not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
