Chimney Flashing Repair

Chimney flashing is the metal that joins the roof to the chimney. It should be installed in a way that water runs down the flashing and is unable to get under the flashing, just like your roofing materials. 

Top Hat can repair that leaking rusted, leaking, bad chimney flashing.

Leaking Chimney FlashingChimney Flashing Materials

Chimney flashings are usually made from a durable material, then often sealed with a flexible sealant such as tar, silicone, polyeurathane...etc.

Chimney flashing can be made from galvanized steel, stainless steel, copper, lead, aluminum or even vinyl.

Leaking Caused by Chimney Flashing

The most common type used in older homes in the Pennsylvania area is galvanized steel. Galvanized steel will hold up for a number of years, but eventually, due to the extreme weather climates will fail. Holes can rust into the flashing cause your chimney to leak water.

Repaired Chimney FlashingAnother way the chimney flashing can leak is incorrect installation. The chimney flashing should be installed into a groove cut into the brick and sealed with a high grade sealant. We often find that the flashing has not be cut in. This can allow water that penetrates the brick and mortar to seep in right behind the flashing and into the house. Chimneys that are very wide where the down slope of the roof meets the chimney should have a "saddle flashing" installed to direct water around the chimney masonry, instead of pooling up or "damming" behind the chimney and getting under the shingles.

Top Hat can repair your chimney flashing to help prevent water leaks for years to come!
