With all the rain we get here in the greater Knoxville area, a chimney leak caused by damaged or missing flashing can be devastating if not quickly addressed. But TN Fireplace and Chimney is here to help. Our team of Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified chimney professionals can provide fast and effective flashing repairs and put a stop to your water problems before further damage ensues.
The flashing on your chimney has a very big job: it works to keep water from entering the home where your roofline and your chimney come together. These metal sheets are interwoven with the shingles surrounding your chimney and layered along the chimney’s base as well. When properly installed and undamaged, flashing does a great job of protecting this vulnerable area against water.
What Causes Flashing Damage?
Aside from poor installation, many things can render flashing ineffective and lead to chimney leaks:
- Strong winds & straight line winds can rip up flashing or cause gaps between layers.
- Water can pool on the flashing and cause rusting and corrosion.
- Animals can dent or pull up flashing.
- Debris and fallen tree limbs can dent or damage flashing.
