Roof flashing plays an important role in leak prevention at the most vulnerable areas of your roof including the chimney, valleys, around dormers and skylights, and plumbing stacks. Flashing is usually made of aluminum or steel which is installed at the weak areas of your roof where it expands and contracts to shed water away.
Roof Flashing Issues
It is unfortunate to say, but because roof flashing is one of the most time consuming and labour intensive parts of roof installation, it tends to be one of the most rushed and neglected. Temperature changes cause even greater expansion and contraction of roof flashings, which makes it all the more important that they are installed correctly. Even in good installations, roof flashing can rust or become damaged, or the sealant can dry up and crack. Regular inspections are important and quick repairs or replacements are necessary to keep your roof functioning optimally and your home protected.
Hire a Professional
Use a roofing contractor who is knowledgeable, experienced, licensed and insured. Roof flashing is temperamental and if it has become loose, water may have already penetrated the surface of your roof. Or, there may be additional roofing structural issues that you are entirely unaware of. A professional is able to correctly diagnose the problem and work quickly to solve it.
