Protecting Your HomeThe purpose of chimney flashing

Have you ever experienced leaks or water damage in your home? From cracked masonry to water stains, water and excess moisture quickly takes a toll on your fireplace, roof, and home. This is a frustrating issue, especially if it occurs time and time again. Fortunately, there are ways to put an end to it all.

Water damage-related repair work can be time-consuming, costly, and stressful, so taking affordable preventative measures is a smart investment. This is where flashing comes in.

The area where your roof and chimney meet is especially vulnerable because the two materials expand and contract at different rates. Because of this, flashing needs to be installed to create a cover for your home. It protects the area, so that water cannot enter through any gaps or openings, and it sends rain, sleet, and snow down your roof and away from your home, so you don’t need to worry about a thing.
