NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR FARMINGVILLE, LONG ISLAND

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing defends the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked sections in the conservation of a dwelling. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Roof flashing is installed to stop your Farmingville structure from water leakage and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place will slowly erode, making the roof susceptible to leaks.Chimney flashing is the last line of defense from water damage.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to stop rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

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. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your structure’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an professional chimney flashing company such as Expressway to inspect your structure’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Highly-skilled Pro

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Farmingville) 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). Workers on the roof in Farmingville may also inadvertently harm the flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in good working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our chimney experts repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. 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 tested for cracks at least once a month. Our team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be replaced. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Dwelling materials also simply just develop harm over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be severely broken by regular water infiltration. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
