Chimney flashing is a roofing process which stops water getting into the roof by sealing up gaps between the chimney and the roof it sits on. Found between the intersection of a chimney and its roof, the joints are some of a roof’s most susceptible parts. Due to weather changes, they continually contract and expand.


Making allowance for the expansion and contraction of the joints without side effects and keeping the intersections watertight are functions performed by flashing. With poor chimney flashing fitting, water can seep into joints which will end up damaging the ceiling and other things in the roof. With water damage, the ceiling around the chimney gets a brown colouration; this is the point where you call a roofing service provider. Amateur roofers can provide you with a short term solution which involves the use of tar.
