Roof Flashing, Chimneys

Also see: Moisture around the Fireplace

Flashings are a very important part of your overall roofing system. They help direct the flow of water and are the barrier so water does not seep into your home compromising not only the structure itself but your walls, ceilings and contents. If not installed and maintained properly, there is a costly disaster waiting to happen.

A warm cozy fire with smoke going up your chimney is a beautiful thing, but unfortunately a lot of bad things can happen around that brick chimney. Flashing around the chimney can rust through, depending on the material it is made from. Rust will compromise the integrity of the flashing causing water to seep into your home damaging walls, ceilings, etc. Another issue that chimneys are known for is leaking. If you are finding cracks or water stains on your ceilings or around your chimney, the flashing is more than likely the culprit.

Most flashing problems can be repaired fairly easily. The issue is not the fix, the real issue is safety. It is extremely dangerous walking around on your roof….dangerous to yourself and to your roof as well. Knowing exactly what to look for and how to safely fix any roofing problem is best left to the professionals.
