ServicesChimney Flashing

Chimney flashing is of paramount importance as it serves as a protective barrier, preventing water from infiltrating the vulnerable joint between the chimney and the roof.

When we think about important parts of a chimney the first things that come to mind are usually the bricks, the construction, and the mortar lined joints. These parts are all integral to the function of the chimney but there is another piece that is also very important and that piece is the flashing. Flashing lines the bottom edge of the chimney and, when it is installed and functioning properly, prevents water from entering the house via gaps between the roof and the edge of the chimney. This is typically done using two courses of flashing; The base and the counter. The base flashing is embedded in the shingles and bent upwards. The counter flashing is embedded in the mortar. Here are some photos of flashing that will fail or has already failed (leak:)

The corners need to be wrapped, or tight against opposing flashing. All chimney flashing needs to be properly caulked where required.

Bent flashing can permit water intrusion

Uncaulked flashing at the corners can permit water intrusion

Leaving this review for my parents, who recently hired Cliff from Rooftop Chimney for a chimney repair, back in June. They were quick with an estimate, at a fair price and the work was scheduled promptly. They did an excellent job and we would definitely hire them again in the future or recommend them to friends!

I’m selling my house and needed the wood stove insert removed. With the closing date approaching, Rooftop Chimney was able to work me in their schedule and get the job done quickly and professionally. I got the DEQ certificate much faster than I thought I would. Thanks to Justin and his crew!!! I would highly recommend Rooftop Chimney.

Arrived on time – worked very hard to remove our very heavy fireplace insert and took extreme care to do the job well. Completed their work by cleaning our two chimneys and got it all done in good time. We would recommend their services to all.

After selling our home, the inspection indicated that there was some work that needed to be done on our chimney including repairing some mortar as well as putting a top cap on the chimney. I contacted Rooftop Chimney and Roof Services. They were very knowledgeable answering all of my questions. That along with prompt professional service I would recommend them for any chimney needs you may need!

We do give free estimates, but we have found over the years that getting photos ahead of time can speed things up dramatically. Heck, we have talked ourselves out of work by seeing photos and telling the customer “No, you do not need a several-thousand dollar rebuild; it looks like you only need a…”. It has happened.
