Flashing Installation

Your heating appliances and chimney make up a system all their own, but they’re also part of a bigger system: your home. Your chimney and your home have some connective joints that bring them together and make them vulnerable, if not maintained. Case in point: the place where your chimney and roofline meet. Flashing is installed at this meeting point to ensure that water stays out of your chimney and out of your home. Damaged or missing flashing means vulnerability to water — something we definitely do not want.

 

More About Chimney Flashing

before and after flashing chimneyFlashing is generally made of sheet metal, lead or copper, and consists of two main parts: step flashing – shaped like an L and integrated in with the shingles; and counter flashing -which is layered over the step flashing and embedded into the masonry.

The step flashing keeps the area where the chimney and roof meet from taking on rain; the counter flashing keeps rain from getting behind the step flashing. Together, those two parts make for an effective barrier against water.

That said, flashing can take on damage. Heavy wind can pull up edges and loosen or pull off flashing; the metal itself can sustain damage from the elements or animals; caulk around the edges can come loose. Damaged flashing can allow water to then damage your roof, your chimney, your attic, ceilings and other areas.

Every chimney is unique and flashing installation is detailed, custom work that needs to be done by a professional. We can custom design and install flashing that suits your chimney and your home.
