Roof Flashing Repair and Installation With The Roofing Company, Enfield.

Roof Flashing Repair and Installation

At The Roofing Company, Enfield, we can take on any roofing work that you may need and this includes the repair and installation of roof flashing. Your Roof Flashings provide a watertight seal for your roof and your property. When your flashings become damaged, water is able to get into your chimney or higher roof areas.

Roof Flashing is used across your entire roofing structure and therefore applies to homes with tiled, slate, flat or roofs with Dorma windows, as flashing around the ‘valleys’ helps to keep water out of your home by sealing up all of the joints. This flashing ensures that the inside of your home stays dry, however, it does degrade and can become damaged.

Why we only use and recommend Roof Flashing

Some roofers apply a cement fillet when fixing roof joints, however, this is not the best choice for a long-term solution. Even when a bonding agent is added, water will still find a way in. Using this option will mean that after a period of time, the cement will crack and fall away, allowing major leaks to occur.

The flashing we use is lead sheeting because it is a great material that is easy to work into the required shape and will not split or crack.

Whilst there are now other, newer roof flashing materials, we still prefer to use lead because it is still the best and most durable choice.

Keeping Your Roof Watertight

We really can’t overplay how important the proper fitting of flashing is, it is what makes your roof safe and protected from the British weather and rain. No matter how good your roof looks, without adequate flashing, you will get leaks and internal damage to your roof structure and home as a result. This can lead to much bigger and more expensive repairs if not dealt with.

On new build homes, flashing is typically fitted before the tiles, so when flashing needs to be replaced, as many as three lines of tiles need to be lifted on either side to enable access.

With chimney stack flashings, they are usually made up of two pieces, with the lower piece fitting under the shingles and the top piece installed between the bricks and resealed using mortar.
