NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR GORDON HEIGHTS, LONG ISLAND

The Importance Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing preserves the areas around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected spots in the conservation of a dwelling. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other problems. 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 securing your Gordon Heights residence.

There are 3 designs of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from your chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stop water from leaking into the home. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which stops water’s nature to pond on the roof. 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. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve the chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

New Chimney Flashing

Even if your roof looks 100% fine after a heavy rain or snow storm, there could still be underlying leakage 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. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your home – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging 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 Gordon Heights) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on your roof in Gordon Heights may also inadvertently damage the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps prevent water damage from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in optimum working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the home’s chimneys in Gordon Heights are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next factor that we 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. Chimney crown cracks are one of the principal reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney leakage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Home materials also simply just develop breakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other residence building materials can be severely broken by regular water aggression. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets and if water is damaging down into your structure, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
