The Importance of Chimney Flashing
Chimney flashing is the metal or waterproof material installed at the intersection of your chimney and roof. It creates a watertight seal, preventing water from seeping into your home and causing damage to the interior, walls, and foundation. Properly installed and maintained flashing is essential for safeguarding your chimney and ensuring its longevity
Types of Chimney Flashing
Step Flashing: Step flashing consists of L-shaped metal pieces that are interwoven with roofing shingles and the chimney. It creates a series of steps that effectively direct water away from the joint.
Counter Flashing: Counter flashing is installed over the step flashing and is embedded into the chimney mortar joints. It forms a protective barrier against water, securing the vulnerable area.
Continuous Flashing: Continuous flashing is a single, continuous piece of metal that wraps around the base of the chimney and extends onto the roof. This type of flashing is ideal for chimneys that have a larger base.
Signs of Chimney Flashing Issues
Water Stains on Ceilings and Walls: Water stains on ceilings and walls near the chimney indicate a flashing problem that allows water to leak into your home.
Mold or Mildew Growth: Excess moisture caused by faulty flashing can lead to mold or mildew growth in your home’s interior.
Rust on Chimney Components: Rust on the chimney cap or other metal chimney parts may signify water infiltration due to damaged flashing.
Loose or Missing Flashing: Visible gaps or missing flashing materials around the chimney area are clear indications of potential water penetration.
