Roof Flashing Repairs
Roof flashing repairs match the material that your flashing is made from so that the repair is invisible. Attempting roof flashing repairs with silicone can give you a short term fix, but the silicone will rapidly deteriorate in such an exposed position and fail sooner rather than later. Our repairs will do the job properly.
Roof Flashing Replacement
Replacing roof flashing is an essential step in keeping your home safe and free from weather damage. Without flashing, water could squeeze its way down through any tiny gap between your roof and connecting wall, leaking into your home.
One of the most common causes of roof leaks is improperly installed or damaged roof flashing. An improper installation could have dire long term effects, and could lead to such home horrors as wood rot or even ceiling replacement.
To avoid these disastrous outcomes, it's important to put your flashing replacement in hands you can trust. Jim's Roofing is the number one choice for all of your flashing replacement needs. Our expert roofers are fully qualified and licensed to carry out any home improvement service of your roof and provide you with flashings that will last.
We Repair all Types of Roof Flashing
The wide range of roof flashing types might be surprising. After all, each different roof feature has a unique shape and design, and they all need protection. Therefore, a lot of flashing designs are available to suit each and every feature.
Continuous flashing, also known as 'apron flashing', acts as its alternate name suggests: like an apron. This standard form of flashing is a single long piece of metal that redirects water flow. Continuous flashing is not the most versatile type of water protection, as it struggles to move with an expanding and contracting house over the course of different seasons. Without built-in expansion joints, this type of flashing could break and fail to prevent water damage.
Step flashing is used to shield the space between where the roof meets a side wall. Step flashing is rectangular and has a 90 degree bend at its centre. This type is essential for any home, as it protects the areas of a roof that are the most vulnerable to leaks, and enhances structural integrity. Step flashing is installed in layers with your roof's shingles, to ensure that rain flows away from the wall.
Base flashing is placed around the base of specific roof features, such as chimneys, that require multiple pieces of protection. Chimney flashing is known for being difficult to install, and so the two-piece nature of base flashing helps with the installation process. Thanks to its two-part design, base flashing is able to move and shift with the home. This keeps the flashing secure and ensures longevity for rain protection.
Counter-flashing is installed opposite or above base flashing. It completes the two-part system.
Other common types of flashing include:
- Drip edges
- Valley flashing
- Skylight flashing
- Kickout flashing
- Corrugated flashing
Our roofing professionals know each and every flashing type like the back of their hands. For more information on the different types of flashings and their benefits, contact the experts at Jim's Roofing.
