NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR LLOYD HARBOR, LONG ISLAND

Arrays Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing preserves the spots around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most overlooked sections in the preservation of a property. Most homeowners don’t give a lot of thought to their Lloyd Harbor home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. When roof or chimney flashing becomes broken, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other problems. Roof flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. Chimney flashing is your last line of defense from water damage.

There are 3 selections of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from the chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to hamper 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 your residence through a gap caused by broken or missing flashing, there should be major cause for leaks.

Checking For Chimney Flashing Damage

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. If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your dwelling that start to leak, call us immediately. Our trained flashing techs will find the source of the problem and fix it ASAP. Leaky roofs almost always cause additional damage to other parts of your structure – which can then include the growth of sickening mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to address. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water penetrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does Flashing Become Worrisome?

Here in the NY tri-state area (and especially in Lloyd Harbor) 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. Old age – i.e. many cold winters and hot summers. Flashing that has deteriorated from the elements will eventually cause problems to the roofing system, as your chimney flashing helps forestall 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 efficient working order.

Some Signs Your Chimney May Need New Flashing:

  • the flashing is dislodged or missing
  • your flashing is rusted or rotted through
  • your flashing is now coming loose
  • the flashing is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • The chimney is leaking water into your residence.

Chimney Flashing Inspections

Many of the chimneys flashing that we repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was initially built. 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 analyzed for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the leading reasons that chimney can leak past the chimney flashing. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, our team will replace all of the flashing around the areas in question and help to keep your residence’s roof secured. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Home materials also simply just develop leakage over time. Wall boards, insulation, electrical wiring and other dwelling building materials can be severely harmed by regular water seepage. Mold is known to be harmful to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your property, the growth can be widespread and very costly to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
