NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR FLANDERS, LONG ISLAND

The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Flanders home’s first line of defense against water leakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most pertinent parts of a home’s chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Flanders home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to impede your Flanders structure from water problems and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. 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 your 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 protect your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your residence that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s highly-skilled chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water eroding into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Replaced?

A variety of factors can harm your flashing and initiate the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps prevent water leakage from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that the flashing is kept in excellent working order.

Chimney flashing should last about 20 years in Flanders’s climate due to the amount of wear and tear caused by New York’s weather patterns.

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the chimneys flashing that we 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can pass the chimney flashing. Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be fixed. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in protecting a dwelling from penetrating water. Residence materials also simply just develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp spots are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, customers may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
