There are over a dozen types of flashing on your roof but the chimney flashing is probably one of the most important when it comes to the longevity of your roof. All flashing including chimney flashing is meant to repel water away from areas that regular roofing materials cannot. The chimney and roof deck connection may be the cause of many problems including roof-rot and interior water damage, some of which could be going on for years without your knowledge.
What to Look For
If you have a multi-layer roof installing flashing could present a challenge. At times, the only solution is to change the roof designs to improve roof drainage. In some cases, in order to properly install flashing we may need to remove the siding.
