How to Repair Leaking Chimney Roof Flashing

The flashing of your chimney is an L-shaped section that protects the joint which lies between the feature and the roof. It can sometimes get pulled away from your chimney, especially if the only thing holding it in place is the roofing cement.

If your roof flashing has separated from the brick, it can allow rainwater to leak into your house. This can affect the integrity of the feature and needs to be fixed without delay. We at Chicago Fireplace Inc. are a premier company in this industry offering top notch chimney flashing repair and service. Our team of experts has vast experience handling these kind of jobs and ensure that all flashing repair work is completed efficiently and cost effectively

Leak Proof Flashing Fixing Leaks Around Chimneys

Proper chimney flashing is made up of two layers. The first layer is called the step flashing in which L-shaped sheet metal sections are woven efficiently into the shingle courses and then lapped up alongside the chimney. The counterflashing is the second layer of metal that’s embedded in the mortar joints of the chimney and then folded down to completely cover the step flashing’s upper surface.

Chimney Flashing Repair & Service

When our team visits your location, they will first inspect the chimney flashing in order to determine whether these steps are needed to fix it. If the flashing appears to be in good condition, they would recommend that only recaulking be done. However, it must be understood that caulk isn’t the ideal substitute for properly-installed flashing.
