Flashing creates a water-resistant shell around the base of a chimney to stop water leaks, which seep down into walls and ceilings. Failure of the chimney flashing threatens the structural integrity of your roof and exposes the interior of your home to water damage and potentially dangerous mold growth. Due to age, structural settling, and weather conditions, chimney flashing can crack, split, and pull away from the chimney base, necessitating an immediate repair.
In Florida, chimneys are typically constructed with stucco or stone and flashing may be made of materials other than lead. Whenever a roof is replaced, the flashing is disturbed and may become damaged. Any puncture, cut, or tear in the flashing, no matter how minor, will allow water to leak in.
