Benefits of Chimney Flashing
Chimney flashing is comprised of two pieces of metal that fit between the chimney and the roof decking. It deters water from leaking into your home and ensures that the connection between the chimney and the roof is watertight. While chimney cap flashing does last for some time, it is vulnerable to regular wear and tear.
Properly installed chimney flashing can keep water from leaking where the chimney and the roof meet. This can prevent many avoidable problems such as water intrusion and mold due to excess moisture.
Due to the challenging nature of chimney flashing installation, we highly recommend you hire a professional chimney leak repair company for all roof flashing repairs. Chimney flashing involves installing two separate metal panels and includes these steps:
- Base Flashing - First, we install the base flashing underneath the shingles against the brick chimney.
- Counter Flashing - Second, we install the counter flashing over the base flashing and embed it into the chimney mortar joint.
- Quality Control Check - Once complete, we check that both pieces are sealed and there are no breaks, cracks, or holes in the flashing or surrounding areas.
