Chimney Flashing Repair
Chimney flashing is the metal installed at the intersection of a chimney and a roof line; to prevent water from seeping into the joint. The flashing forms a water-resistant barrier between the chimney and roof, ensuring rainwater and other runoff don’t leak into the home or structure.

No matter the flashing material used on your home’s chimney, it must be layered correctly to keep water out and your roof dry.
What is Chimney Flashing?
Chimney Flashing is sheet metal used to seal water out of any openings where the chimney meets the roof. “Chimney Flashing” has one job to keep water out and help divert water away from vulnerable areas.
Various metals can be used in a flashing application, including stainless steel and aluminum; copper is the best metal, known for its longevity, durability, and timeless good looks. The majority of the flashing work we do utilizes copper metal for these and other positive qualities.
