Flashing refers to pieces of sheet metal or other water resistant material installed to prevent the passage of water into your house from the expansion space around your chimney. Flashing is the seal between the roofing material and the chimney. It prevents rainwater or snow melt from running down the chimney into living spaces where it can damage ceilings and walls and cause rot in rafters. Leaks often occur at the chimney when flashing fails. If improperly installed, it can cause severe water damage to the roof structure and eventually migrate into the interior walls of your home. This is also true of deteriorated, torn or damaged flashing.
