NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR FLOWER HILL, LONG ISLAND

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Flower Hill structure’s first line of defense against water damage. Chimney flashing is one of the most forgotten sections in the sustainment of a property. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Flower Hill home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to forestall your Flower Hill property from water damage 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.Replacing your chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and preserving your Flower Hill dwelling.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to hamper 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 preserve your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

New Chimney Flashing

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 dwelling that start to leak, call us immediately. Our highly-skilled flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your structure’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water getting into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Leave The Flashing Repairs To A Fully-trained Professional

A variety of conditions can harm the flashing and begin the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals that enjoy chewing on the flashing. Rust issues (which are common with certain arrays of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps avert water leakage from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that your flashing is kept in efficient working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the home’s chimneys in Flower Hill are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next element that our chimney experts would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be renovated 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 your property and assess the integrity of your structure’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be replaced. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the flashing around the spots in question and help to keep your residence’s roof protected. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely deteriorated 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 pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
