Trust Your Flashing Repair Work To The Professionals
Rain can be a blessing for your garden or your lawn, but it’s never a blessing for your chimney. Chimney leaks can cost a pretty penny to repair, especially if extensive damage was done before the leak was detected. That’s why we encourage our neighbors throughout Maryland to be proactive about leak prevention. Being proactive means making sure your system is properly equipped to battle the everyday moisture challenges it faces.
The first step in leak prevention is to schedule annual inspections with certified professionals you can trust. An inspection can reveal a lot of problems and vulnerabilities early on, which is key when it comes to leak prevention.
Is Your Flashing Properly Installed & In Good Condition?
One of the areas your chimney professional will check during an inspection is the flashing that covers the chimney at the roofline. Because this area is so vulnerable to water penetration and prone to leaks, layers of protective metal (flashing) should be carefully and professionally installed by experienced technicians to ensure that the chimney and roof seams stay dry and protected. Without proper flashing, this area will surely take on rain, snow, and sleet.
Unfortunately, not every flashing job is well done. Many inexperienced installers may use poor materials or leave raised areas or dents in the flashing, which can lead to pooling water and quick corrosion. Additionally, if several nail holes are created, water can quickly gather in these areas and seep in.
