All You Need to Know About Chimney Flashing Repair and Replacement

A big misconception about chimneys is that they are low maintenance. Although not all chimneys have visible problems, it’s important to be mindful of any potential problems that chimney flickering or flashing could cause.

Chimney Flashing is a metal plate that is installed around the area where the chimney meets the roof. The blink ensures that the connection is airtight between the chimney and the roof. These metals last for quite a while, but have an expiration date and you should be alert to any visible damage.
