What Is Flashing & What Does It Do?
Chimney flashing is designed to prevent water from entering through the area where your roof meets your chimney. This spot is especially vulnerable because the two parts are made from different materials, meaning they expand and contract at different rates. The gaps that often form need something to cover them, otherwise water could easily creep in and ruin your roof, ceilings, and woodwork.
Flashing consists of a sheet of metal, specially formed to cover this area, so that water simply slides down and away from the roof without causing excess damage. Without it, you could easily experience leaks, causing damage to both your home and chimney. It’s a lot less time-consuming to invest in flashing now, rather than repair work down the line, and it’s much more affordable, too.
If you’re ready to get flashing installed, or if your current flashing is bent, cracked, or rusted, call on our team. We’ll fix you up right in no time!
Why Trust The Pros?
Are you wondering if this is a job you could tackle on your own? The idea of installing flashing may seem pretty simple, but it’s a task where any minor slip-up or misplacement of parts could leave you in the same boat you were in before. Every home is different, so flashing always needs to be custom-fitted to your structure’s unique design. If the area isn’t sealed just right, you’ll still be left with water sneaking in through cracks and openings, putting a damper on your burning season in a hurry.
We’ve been in this business for 55 years now, and our team is associated with and/or certified by the CSIA, the NFI, the FIRE, and countless other reputable organizations. When you entrust us with your flashing, you can rest easier knowing the job will get done right! We offer the care, professionalism, and top-notch protection you deserve, and we won’t quit until everything is installed according to our high standards. If you want to work with the best, give us a call today!
