#1 in Chimney Flashing Services in the Chicago Area
Leaks in and around the chimney flashing is very common. It can have an impact on the roof’s structural integrity and cause expensive repairs down the line. It is important to ensure the chimney flashing is always in good condition and doesn’t have any hidden damages. If you experience any problem with roof leakage, call us for chimney flashing inspection and repair.
This structure might look simple, but it has several components in it. Here’s a look at what most brick chimney flashing consists of:
All of these components should be in good condition for the chimney to work efficiently. Installing and repairing this structure requires experience, skill, and a keen understanding of how it works.
Our first step during the installation process is to remove the old flashing completely and make sure the underlying structure is sound. We will check for damaged wood and other such issues before installing the underlayment.
Once the underlayment is installed, we add the step flashings carefully. These are custom-made according to your roof’s requirements. We then install chimney saddles, which are placed on the top and bottom of the chimney structure.
The old mortar on the chimney base is removed before our technicians install the counter flashing. These are installed on mortar joints to form a good seal over the structure. We use lead plugs to hold this chimney flashing in place. The flashing is then purified to prevent oxidation before we solder it into place.
Our chimney service experts will implement some other steps after the flashing is soldered to ensure the structure remains securely in place.
