Professional Flashing Repairs Can Keep Water Out Of Your Chimney For Years

We run across improperly installed and poorly maintained flashing almost every day on the job. And unfortunately, we see the devastating effects this can have on the chimney system and the homeowner’s finances. That’s one reason why we’re such advocates for annual inspections! When you keep up with annual inspections, you’ll be alerted to issues with your flashing well before you encounter problems.

During an inspection, our technicians will evaluate your flashing and determine whether it was installed properly and whether or not it is still effectively doing its important job of keeping water out of your home. If we find that your flashing is damaged or was installed improperly, you can count on the team at Top Notch Chimney Sweep & Services to make the necessary repairs to ensure that your system is properly protected.

What Is Flashing & Why Is It So Important?

The point where your chimney exits your roof is incredibly vulnerable to water penetration, which is why we have flashing. Flashing is a series of metal sheets, which, if installed properly and well maintained, works to keep water from entering this area of weakness. The technicians here at Top Notch have years of flashing installation and repair experience and know what it takes to keep water out of this area.

When flashing is poorly installed or damaged by wind, animals, or falling debris, it may lift and leave areas for water to quickly seep down into the home. Additionally, dented or poorly laid flashing may allow water to pool on the surface, which can eventually lead to rusted holes within the flashing, where water can also easily access the home.

Professional & Friendly
After buying a new house, my wife and I didn't know much about our fireplace and chimney. Tom came up to Ames to inspect and clean our chimney. He was prompt, professional, and friendly--our dog, who is a good judge of character, really liked him too! He gave us a lot of great information, talking us through how to best use our fireplace, and he left us feeling confident that we'll be able to enjoy our nice fires during the cold seasons for years to come! He also helped me understand what issues we might have with the unused, boarded-up fireplace in the basement and promised to come take a look at it this winter in the event that we want to get it in workable condition too.I'm really pleased with the service we received, and now I know who I'm going to call for yearly service or for any problems! Thanks, Tom, for all your help!  I'll be passing on your name to friends!
