ARAC Roof It Forward Case Studies: Proper Chimney Flashing Installation Techniques
An improper chimney flashing can be a major source for leaking roofs. In colder climates especially the installation performed may prohibit water from entering at the chimney, but may not allow built up melting snow and ice to keep out of the home in these chimney areas.
Installing the chimney flashing is a labor intensive task, however it must be performed on a new roofing system replacement to ensure this vital area is protected. Utilizing materials such as Ice and Water protection and counter flashing materials not only protect this vital area but provide an outstanding clean looking curb appeal to the new roofing system.
