NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR GARDEN CITY SOUTH, LONG ISLAND

Styles Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing secures the places around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most important parts of a dwelling’s chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Garden City South home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other issues. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place will slowly erode, making the roof vulnerable to leaks. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe damage to your Garden City South structure and parts of the chimney.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to stall rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Chimney flashing is made typically from sheet metal strips that are fashioned to fit securely around the base of the chimney where it intersects with the roof. If water is allowed to flow down into the dwelling through a gap caused by damages or missing flashing, there should be major cause for damage.

New Chimney Flashing

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. Our highly-skilled flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional issues to other parts of your structure – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to remove. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an fully-trained chimney flashing company such as Expressway to look at your home’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 Garden City South) 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 Garden City South may also inadvertently damage the flashing. If the 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 fine working order.

Some Signs The Chimney May Need New Flashing:

  • your flashing is dislodged or missing
  • the flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • the flashing is now coming loose
  • your flashing is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • The chimney is leaking water into your dwelling.

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Garden City South are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next part that we 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 analyzed 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 sections in question and help to keep the residence’s roof cushioned. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in protecting a dwelling from aggressive water. Dwelling materials also simply just develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely harmed by regular water aggression. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners 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.
