Chimney flashing Portland Oregon is a critical element in chimney and roof construction to protect against leaks. Flashing is a waterproof material that is placed to funnel water away from construction joints. Flashing is installed during chimney construction at the base between the slab and the brickwork, at the connection between the roof and the chimney protrusion, the crown base, and at the gap between the flue liner and the chimney.
Quality flashing is made from metal materials like copper, stainless steel, galvanized steel and aluminum. Metal flashing is recommended for chimney construction because it withstands exposure to weather and high temperatures.
If you suspect that you have a chimney or flashing leak then you should call right away. Water from leaks can rot your timber, decay your bricks and mortar, and dissolve your drywall. In addition, it also creates a health hazard because biological contaminates like mold can thrive in wet conditions.
