NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR HOSPITAL ISLAND, LONG ISLAND

Styles Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends the sections around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked places in the upkeep of a dwelling. 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 causes a host of other issues. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe leakage to your Hospital Island residence and parts of the chimney.

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 hamper water from leaking into the home. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which averts 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 defend your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water penetration.

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 leakage that can go unnoticed to a novice eye. 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. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water getting into the attic or into walls that you can see?

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Inspected?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Hospital Island) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can free the flashing material. Rust issues (which are common with certain designs of flashing material). Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s flashing is damaged, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having correctly installed or maintained flashing, it’s important to ensure that your flashing is kept in good working order.

Whether you have a fireplace that is built with masonry stone or brick you’ll have to manage the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that our pros repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. The next factor 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 inspected for cracks at least once a month. Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of your structure’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 fixes chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in defending a dwelling from aggressive water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the breakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp areas are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be threatening to humans and pets and if water is penetrating down into your dwelling, the growth can be widespread and very expensive to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
