Importance of Properly Functioning FlashingThe flashing has an important role to play for your roof and building. It protects the roof at the corners, where the different angles meet on the roof. A well-designed and durable flashing will direct the flow of water away from your building. When it gets damaged or comes off, it can cause water to leak in, which can result in water damage or mold. Whether you need flashing repair, new installation, or replacement services, we can take care of your project. We can ensure that the job is done right the first time.
Causes of Flashing DamageThere are many causes of damage to the flashing. Some of the common issues that we come across and fix for our clients include:
- Improper Flashing Installation: The flashing will serve its purpose only if it is installed properly. This requires no gaps, excess nail holes, or dents. We often come across poor installation jobs that create pathways for water or water collection spots. This results in chimney leaks.
- Damage by the Elements: Strong winds and storms can dent or even lift flashing. Heavy rain and ice or snow can cause rusting, leading to leaks.
- Pest Damage: Birds and rodents can pull up the flashing or cause dents, resulting in the accumulation of moisture. Raccoons and squirrels can mess with your flashing and create major water damage.
Flashing repair or replacement is a job that is best left to licensed experts. You cannot just choose any roofing contractor for the job.
