In roofing, flashing refers to a thin material, usually galvanized steel, that professional roofers use to direct water away from critical areas of the roof, a water-resistant material that stops water from penetrating your roof system in high-risk areas such as vents, chimney, joints, exhausts appliance connection points. Depending on the structure of a roof, flashing can be a stream of materials such as cement and tar, or a sturdier alternative like zinc, copper, lead, or steel. Roof systems without sufficient flashing may not adequately prevent the penetration of water, and this often leads to stains, damage, and leakage.
Over time necessary flashing materials such as cement and tar will gradually degrade to the point that they become ineffective at preventing water from entering. Typically, we will replace these materials with more productive and durable metal alternatives. Correct and valid installation of roof flashing is complicated because it is essential that the flashing is compatible with the roofing system, so roof flashing should only be handled by qualified experts like those at Roofing Reno, the premier roofing consultants in Reno. Don't let water infiltration and leaks make your home look bad and thus decrease its value. Your leaky roof is often a result of a weak roofing system's flashing arising from preventable water leaks.
