Flashing is a crucial element in making a building weather-resistant and preventing water from entering the building by diverting it away. Installed on roofs around chimneys, skylights and roof edges, flashing is usually made of aluminium or galvanised material.
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.
The Webb Plumbing Services team, trained in heights and experienced in roofing, can inspect any roof and existing flashing and identify any critical issues or where additional flashing is required. The team can also custom make the flashing to fit correctly and prevent water entry.
