NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR HARBOR HILLS, LONG ISLAND

Designs Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Harbor Hills residence’s first line of defense against water leakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most forgotten sections in the maintenance of a property. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Roof flashing is installed to avert your Harbor Hills home from water leakage and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the 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 preserving your Harbor Hills residence.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to impede 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. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to cushion your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water intrusion.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. Water stains could indicate the start of a leaking problem. Our trained flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional problems to other parts of your home – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to remove. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does Flashing Become Damaged?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Harbor Hills) 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 Harbor Hills may also inadvertently damage the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause weakening to your roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps impede water damages 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 your flashing is kept in good working order.

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

Chimney Flashing Problems

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Harbor Hills are over 50 years old or more and failing. 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. Missing mortar joints also need to be repaired and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can pass the chimney flashing. Expressway’s team will visit your property and assess the integrity of the home’s chimney system, identify whether your flashing needs to be replaced. Chimney inspection is a small maintenance task, but it’s one that you can’t afford to overlook. Chimney problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be severely broken by regular water aggression. Because harm happens below the roof and out of sight, clients may not become aware of a leak until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
