NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR MANHASSET, LONG ISLAND

Styles Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing protects 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 home. Chimney flashing is rarely seen – or even noticed – until something goes wrong with it. When roof or chimney flashing becomes problematic, it loses it imperviousness and resistance to water and initiates a host of other leaks. Chimney flashings are generally made of thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are usually mounted beneath the roof’s shingles. Warped or missing flashing can lead to a serious water leak and severe leakage to your Manhasset home and parts of the chimney.

There are 3 types of chimney flashing. ‘Step flashing’ – which diverts water from the roof away from your chimney. ‘Counter flashing’ – which is installed around a chimney to stop water from leaking into the property. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which impedes water’s nature to pond on the roof. Counter flashing protects the top ridge gap of the L-flashing and is secured by embedding it into the chimney masonry. If water is allowed to flow down into the dwelling through a gap caused by leaking or missing flashing, there should be major cause for damage.

New Chimney Flashing

Following a storm, walk around your structure 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 Expressway Roofing & Chimney immediately. Expressway’s trained chimney techs recommend you never let leaks go without address or repair for very long. On your dwelling’s roof, do you see mold, algae, mildew or fungus growth? If you notice mold, shrinking, blistering or curling shingles, contact an professional chimney flashing company such as Expressway to look at your structure’s chimney and roof and recommend an appropriate course of action before it’s too late.

How Does Flashing Become Clogged?

A variety of issues can harm your flashing and begin the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Leakage producers definitely include powerful winds that can uplift 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 your chimney’s flashing is broken, it can quickly become a major issue if left unaddressed. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained flashing, it is important to ensure that the flashing is kept in good working order.

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

Spotting Damaged Chimney Flashing

Many of the chimneys flashing that our chimney experts repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first built. The next part that we 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. If your chimney’s flashing is rusting and breaking away from your roof, Expressway’s team will replace all of the flashing around the places in question and help to keep your dwelling’s roof preserved. Chimney damage usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. Home materials also simply just develop breakage over time. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp sections are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Mold is known to be unhealthy to humans and pets and if water is leaking down into your residence, the growth can be widespread and very costly to remedy. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
