Flashing is the protective seal that prevents water intrusions at areas such as chimneys, dormers vents, and skylights. Flashing is extremely important when it comes to preventing moisture damage or water penetration into your home. Flashing is the preventative measure that protects areas that are most prone to water penetration on a roof’s surface. Water will find any crack or crevasses it can to enter your home. This is why flashing is important at all roof edges, valleys joints, grooves, gaps, intersections and projections on your roof.
Flashing is used to protect your home and your roof but if improperly installed can actually damage your roof. Poor or improperly installed flashing can lead to premature deterioration at roof joints. This is why it is important to have flashing properly installed. Having your flashing done right the first time is the best way to protect and preserve your investment.
