NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR LAKEVIEW, LONG ISLAND

Arrays Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is your Lakeview residence’s first line of defense against water breakage. Chimney flashing is one of the most pertinent parts of a property’s chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Lakeview home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes damaged, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and begins a host of other damage. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Replacing the chimney flashing (or flashing sealants) from time to time will go a long way in water tightening the roof and protecting your Lakeview property.

There are 3 styles of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to prevent water from leaking into the dwelling. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which hampers 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. If water is allowed to flow down into the home through a gap caused by harmed or missing flashing, there should be major cause for damage.

Chimney Flashing Issues To Look For

Following a storm, walk around your home 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 residence that start to leak, call us immediately. Expressway’s professional 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 structure – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost the owner thousands more to remove. If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an highly-skilled chimney flashing company such as Expressway to assess your dwelling’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

Do I Need My Chimney Flashing Assessed?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Lakeview) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Damage producers definitely include powerful winds that can displace 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 broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that your flashing is kept in fine working order.

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the dwelling’s chimneys in Lakeview 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. Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be checked for cracks at least once a month. Our team will visit the property and assess the integrity of the structure’s chimney system, identify whether the flashing needs to be fixed. 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 securing a home from damaging water. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the harm can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be risky to humans and pets and if water is penetrating down into your home, the growth can be widespread and very costly to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
