NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR JOHN BOYLE ISLAND, LONG ISLAND

What Chimney Flashing Does

Chimney flashing secures the areas around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most neglected places in the upkeep of a residence. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their John Boyle Island home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes leaky, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and starts a host of other problems. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep the flashing in place will slowly erode, making the roof wide open to leaks.Replacing your chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening your roof and securing your John Boyle Island property.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to impede 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 exactly, chimney flashing will serve you well for many years.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

Following a storm, walk around your residence and inspect for water stains in your ceiling using a flashlight if possible. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your structure that start to leak, call us immediately. 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 issues to other parts of your residence – 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 professional chimney flashing chimney company such as Expressway to inspect your residence’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Alarming?

A variety of things can harm the flashing and start the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. 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 a roof in John Boyle Island may also inadvertently harm the flashing. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause damage to the roofing system, as the chimney flashing helps avert water problems from occurring to the roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it’s always important to ensure that the flashing is kept in excellent working order.

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the home’s chimneys in John Boyle Island are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next factor that our technicians 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 major 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. Expressway regularly repairs chimney flashing that can no longer do its job in defending a property from aggressive water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the leakage can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very pricey to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
