What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing is your Glenwood Landing residence’s first line of defense against water problems. Chimney flashing is one of the most pertinent parts of a structure’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes awry with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other harm. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place will slowly erode, making the roof sensitive to leaks.Chimney flashing is the last line of defense from water damage.

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. When installed properly, chimney flashing will serve you well for many years.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Following a storm, walk around your home and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our professional 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? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, call an fully-trained chimney flashing chimney company such as Expressway to look at your residence’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Worrisome?

A variety of elements can harm the flashing and start the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your roof in Glenwood Landing may also inadvertently damage the flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is harmed, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in fine working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our chimney experts repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be investigated for cracks at least once a month. Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of your dwelling’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be addressed. 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 defending a home from infiltrating water. House 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 breakage 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.
