Prefabricated 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 put back 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.Base flashing with caulk instead of counter flashing is a short term short cut that ends up creating more problems than it helps.

Testimonials

Dear A to Z,

I just wanted to thank you for your honesty and for a thorough inspection of my chimney. One of the biggest concerns I have when hiring service professionals is being taken advantage when not having first hand knowledge of the various procedures. Last year when I had my chimney swept by one of your competitors, they claimed that I had a chimney fire, and that my flue was now cracked and needed extensive repairs.

This year, I hired A to Z to come out and sweep and inspect the flue because I heard they inspect the chimneys with a Chim Scan camera at no additional charge. The technician who came to my home, assured me I would be able to see any cracks or hazardous conditions along with him as he video scanned my flue. To my utter delight, NO EVIDENCE OF A CHIMNEY FIRE OR DAMAGE IN MY FLUE WAS DETECTED!!! Chris was extremely detailed in his inspection and really took his time educating me so I could feel comfortable. It was obvious that he knew what he was talking about and truly interested in doing the right thing…a far cry from last year’s experience with the other company. If anyone asks for an HONEST, COMPETENT, AND PROFESSIONAL chimney sweep company, I'll be sure to recommend A to Z!
