FAQ

What is chimney flashing?
Chimney flashing is a metal plate that’s installed around the area where the chimney meets the roof. It ensures that the connection between your roof and chimney are airtight, and should ideally prevent any problems with your chimney down the road.

Since chimney flashing is made from metal, it’s relatively durable. It should last for many decades, but that lifespan can be influenced by a number of factors.
When should I replace my chimney flashing?
Climate is one of the biggest factors that can influence the lifespan of your chimney flashing. The elements can erode or oxidize the metal that your flashing is made from, which is a sure sign that it’s time for a replacement.

A properly constructed chimney flashing can prevent these problems and more. Our roof contractors have 25+ years of experience with repairs and installation of chimney flashing, so they can build yours to last.
