NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR GARDEN CITY, LONG ISLAND

The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing secures the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most essential parts of a structure’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes bad with it. Roof flashing is installed to hamper your Garden City residence from water damage and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Replacing your chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and protecting your Garden City home.

There are 3 systems of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stall water from leaking into the home. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stalls water’s nature to pond on the roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect the chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water infiltration.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying problems that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. 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 home’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water leaking into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Assessed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Garden City) 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. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your home’s roof in Garden City may also inadvertently damage the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause problems to your roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps impede water problems from occurring to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in prime 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 Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our technicians repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was originally built. The next part that our pros would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be corrected Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be assessed for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep the property’s roof cushioned. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be severely harmed by regular water aggression. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets and if water is penetrating down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very costly to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
