Protecting Your Home: The Importance of Flashing

Flashing is a part of the home that is often overlooked, though it serves a very important purpose in protecting your house and shielding it from water damage. Flashing is made up of either metal or plastic and it seals vulnerable areas of the house where surfaces meet. This includes chimneys, windows, doors, and roof intersections. It creates a watertight barrier and diverts water away from seeping into the home. 

It is essential to have effective flashing to prevent structural problems caused by water infiltration. Some signs that you might need to replace your flashing include damage like cracks, rust, water stains inside the home, leaks, and dislodged flashing. In addition, if your flashing is old, it might need to be replaced to prevent damage from deterioration.

Homeowners can inspect their flashing on their own, but it is recommended to hire a professional to come take a look. Do you suspect that your flashing may need replacement?
