Your roof is made up of a number of layers of different materials. Aside from shingles, you can also see flashing on your roof’s outermost layer. So, what is roof flashing?
Roof flashing is thin metal material (usually copper, aluminum, or galvanized steel) that is placed on various areas of your roof to help water flow down towards your gutters in order to prevent leaks from entering into your home. Roof flashing is installed around areas like your dormers, chimney, vents, skylights, your roof’s edges, and any areas where the roof meets at an angle.
If you notice that any of your roof’s flashing is loose, missing, or damaged, you need to call a roofing professional ASAP. Because flashing protects your home from leaks, damage to your flashing cannot be ignored, and repairs need to happen immediately before other areas of your roof and your home’s interior are damaged.
In addition, if you have a leak in your roof, and you’re unsure of where it’s coming from, it’s like your roof’s flashing. That’s why it’s important to have a roofing professional perform routine maintenance on your roof. However, even with regular care, a strong storm or some other unexpected event can damage your roof’s flashing. So, always keep your eyes out for signs of damage.
