Roof repairs starting from $150.00
When any part of the roof meets a wall/chimney, there needs to be a waterproof barrier installed. This barrier is made of aluminum or steel. It is uniquely made for all situations. Along with any flashing install, an ice/water adhesive membrane is added to ensure it will be free of leaks. What is ice/water shield?
Chimneys are often the first to give out to the weather, especially in the winter. Leaks around chimneys are a common problem and can fail for multiple reasons, The flashing pieces themselves are loosely secured to the brick/mortar joints. The caulking used can become cracked over time, and it can fail due to improperly installed shingles . It is important that flashing is installed correctly for guaranteed water resistance.
It is highly recommended that flashing is to be replaced alongside a new roof replacement. This will ensure your home is 100 percent water resistant and a full warranty is given. Keep the water out!!
