NEW CHIMNEY FLASHING FOR MANORVILLE, LONG ISLAND

Types Of Chimney Flashing

Chimney flashing defends the sections around the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Chimney flashing is one of the most pertinent parts of a residence’s chimney. Most customers don’t give a lot of thought to their Manorville home’s (or business’s) chimney flashing. Roof flashing is installed to prevent your Manorville dwelling from water problems and is normally placed around vents, chimneys and skylights. The chimney flashing or caulking used to keep your flashing in place will slowly erode, making your roof sensitive to leaks.Chimney flashing is the last line of defense from water damage.

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 stall water from leaking into the residence. And ‘cricket flashing’ – which prevents water’s nature to pond on the roof. L-shaped step flashing is also laid down and tightly sealed with caulk. Expressway provides flashing inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to protect your chimney as well as the roof and attic from the inevitable deterioration caused by excessive water aggression.

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 home that start to leak, call your local flashing experts immediately. Our professional 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 repair. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water damaging into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does Flashing Become Damaged?

A variety of parts can harm your flashing and begin the need for either a flashing repair or new flashing installation. Problem producers definitely include powerful winds that can move the flashing material. Improperly installed flashing or poor-quality caulking used in the sealing process. Workers on the roof in Manorville may also inadvertently dislodge the flashing. If the 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’s always important to ensure that your flashing is kept in excellent 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 chimneys flashing that our pros repair is the same chimney flashing that was installed when the chimney was first 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 studied for cracks at least once a month. Chimney crown cracks are one of the preeminent 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 places in question and help to keep the home’s roof defended. Chimney problems usually begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline. If there are undiscovered cracks or compromises in this masonry, the problems can be faster and more pervasive. Mold growth – which is usually in dark, undrafted and damp places are perfect for growing and harboring mold. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of possible damage until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to inspect your roof and chimney soon.
