NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR FORT SALONGA, LONG ISLAND

Arrays Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Fort Salonga property’s first line of defense against water harm. Chimney flashing is one of the most imperitive parts of a home’s chimney. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Fort Salonga home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other harm. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets past your chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from damaging the structure’s walls and ceilings.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to prevent 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. If water is allowed to flow down into your residence through a gap caused by damages or missing flashing, there should be major cause for alarm.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying damage that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call your local flashing experts immediately. Our highly-skilled flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. On your home’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?

With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in efficient working order.

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Fort Salonga are over 50 years old or more and failing.

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 residence’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be replaced.
