NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR LINDENHURST, LONG ISLAND

Arrays Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing secures the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most essential parts of a dwelling’s chimney. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. Roof flashing is installed to prevent your Lindenhurst dwelling from water leakage and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. If water gets past the chimney flashing, there is nothing left to stop it from damaging your structure’s walls and ceilings.

Chimney flashing’s purpose is to hamper rain water and melting snow. Flashing has two layers: “step flashing” and “counter flashing.” Counter flashing protects the top ridge gap of the L-flashing and is secured by embedding it into the chimney masonry. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to defend your chimney as well as the 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 damage 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. On your structure’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? 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 Looked At?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Lindenhurst) we get quite a bit of sun, wind, sleet, rain and snow every year. Harm producers definitely include powerful winds that can dislodge the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. If the chimney’s flashing is leaky, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having properly installed or maintained flashing, it’s 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 take care of the chimney flashing so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the residence’s chimneys in Lindenhurst are over 50 years old or more and failing. The next thing that our technicians would look for is if the bricks that are above the chimney flashing need to be repaired Last – but not least – almost every fireplace crown needs to be tested for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the principal reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the flashing around the areas in question and help to keep the dwelling’s roof secured. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Residence materials also simply just develop damage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other structure building materials can be severely deteriorated by regular water seepage. Because leakage happens below the roof and out of sight, homeowners may not become aware of the problem until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
