Fall is here and winter is near which means rain is on it's way. Once the winter rain and ice start your probable to late to prevent any leaks that will cause serious damage to the interior of your home. If I were to guess about 80% of roof leaks come from the chimney flashing. Here is a prime example of a chimney that needed some professional help.
Old worn out flashing around the chimney
Old worn out chimney flashing can cause some serious issues to your home and if not taken care of will lead to rotten decking, molded insulation, and damaged drywall inside your home.
Had to cut out to bad decking
As you can see in this photo all the flashing had to be removed along with the shingle around the chimney. Once that was removed it revealed the bad rotten decking underneath. With new deck we added some ice & water shield for extra protection in the winters and replaced all the flashing.
Now doesn't that look so much better? Never mind the looks the homeowner feels great knowing that this winter they won't have to worry about water damage to there home.
