One of the most common areas on the roof that we find ourselves inspecting, in addition to pipe boots, is the flashing around the chimneys. Once the chimney is found to be sound & performing as it should, flashing is often the culprit that leads to water entry.
Our team has the knowledge & ability to knock out a flashing install with their eyes closed (though we NEVER let them!). As a common problem, the solution is often just as straight forward. We always recommend a thorough inspection of the chimney when issues with flashing are noticed, but we are fully prepared to take care of any of these roof system challenges.

On a rainy day, Scott inspected the roof while looking at the problems noted on this homeowner’s chimney.
Flashing appears aged, but from the ground, looks are deceiving.
Once the old flashing is removed, mold present on the brick proves to be a better indication of the water taken into this area. The black material at the base is underlayment our team installed prior to completing the remainder of the repair.

New flashing installed & shingles replaced. Chimney was recently repaired, so nothing further was necessary here. Another Bone Dry job!

Another beautiful example of our flawless flashing, this time with black metal trim on gray shingles. Color choices matter to you, they should be just as important to your contractor!
