Chimney Flashing Repair

What keeps rain water from leaking into your home where the chimney penetrates through the roof? When properly installed, flashing and counter flashing will keep water from leaking into the home for years. Unfortunately, sometimes this flashing falls out, rusts through, or is removed and not replaced when a new roof is installed.

Most commonly, the base flashing is present, but the counter flashing is missing or in need of repair. If you are noticing water leakage around your chimney on your ceiling, in your attic, or beneath your eaves, leaking flashing is most often the culprit. If this is the case with your home’s chimney, consider having A to Z put an immediate stop to your leaking problems!

Base flashing with caulk instead of counter flashing is a short term short cut that ends up creating more problems than it helps. Caulk or roofing tar begin to leak again in no time, and make proper counter flashing repairs more difficult.

Dear A to Z Chimney

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the great service you have done for me. I am an avid wood burner and love to burn my fires just about every evening. There’s nothing like the simple pleasure of curling up next to a warm and cozy fire during those cold winter nights.

Unfortunately, I had a chimney fire which did extensive damage to my chimney and it had to be re-lined with a new Stainless Steel Liner.

Last year, I hired a different company to come out and sweep my chimney. The sweep from that company tried to use high pressure sales tactics to get me to do the repairs. His poor attitude and high pressure turned me off so badly that I decided not to have them do the work.

This year, I hired your company and Chris Donovan was such a gentleman! He gave me the same bad news, but this time I could see it with my own eyes on the screen as he video scanned my flue. He was also much more knowledgeable and informative and really took the time to help me understand. He did not talk condescendingly, and there was no pressure whatsoever.

Consequently, I did hire your company to come back and complete the needed repairs, and was absolutely delighted!! Not only did Chris come back, but Aaron, the owner came, as well. I was delighted to know that the owner was personally seeing to the work. In the process of repairing my chimney, some other minor problems were detected, and they fixed them at no additional charge!

In addition, when everything was done, they did a spectacular job cleaning up every bit of their mess, and I couldn’t even tell they had been here.

Thanks again for the great service you provide! I will use you again and again, and refer you to my friends.

Sincerely,

~ Beverly Bland, Carmichael, CA
