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.

Testimonials

I just wanted to thank you for your expert advice at my last chimney cleaning. We were looking to purchase and install a new wood stove in order to keep our home warmer during the winter, and although it wasn’t directly related to having our chimney swept, your technician took a lot of time to go over several features and designs that were good, and told me several things to watch out for when purchasing a new wood stove.

Needless to say, I could tell this guy knew what he was talking about! It was nice getting an impartial opinion from someone who works with wood stoves all day long!

Suffice it to say that when our new wood stove is installed, we’ll continue to have A to Z out to clean it! You guys are awesome!
