What is Roofing Flashing?
Roofing flashing is a protective barrier, usually made of metal, that protects the joints of a roof. Proper flashing is an essential part of any roof and helps to protect its structural integrity, keeping moisture and debris from damaging the roof. The peaks, valleys, and crevices of any roof are the most likely areas where leaks can form, so flashing provides an extra layer of protection against that.
How to Know If Your Roofing Flashing Needs to Be Replaced
Since roofing flashing is made of metal, one of the most obvious signs that it needs to be replaced is rust. Also, impact from windblown debris can damage flashing, causing it to bend and warp, which, in turn, can lead to leaks. If your flashing is bent in some places, you should have it inspected by a roofing contractor immediately.
How to Replace Roofing Flashing
While you might be a DIY enthusiast, the savvy homeowner will often leave flashing replacement to highly trained experts. Since flashing protects your roof – arguably the most important part of your home – it’s best to leave it to someone who knows what they are doing and has the proper tools and training to get the job done
