The purpose of flashing is to make the building weather-resistant and prevent water from entering the building by diverting it away.
Flashing is usually made of aluminium or galvanised and installed on roofs around chimneys, skylights and roof edges.
Poorly installed flashing or flashing that has rusted or come loose is a common cause of a roof leak.
Skylight leaks are a pervasive problem, and poor flashing is usually the cause. In older buildings, chimney leaks are common. If enough water gets into your chimney, the brick and mortar joints will become brittle, and the chimney’s entire structural integrity will then be at risk.
Trained in heights and experienced in roofing, the Webb Plumbing Services team can inspect any roof and existing flashing and identify any critical issues or where additional flashing is required.
The right flashing and fitting are crucial in avoiding further leaks. The team at Webb Plumbing Services can custom make the flashing to fit correctly and prevent water entry.
