Carefully Engineered and Constructed
Direct Water away from your Chimney and keep your Roof Safe
Lead flashing involves applying thin pieces of impervious material to prevent the passage of water into your roof structure via your chimney. When two parallel pieces of flashing are installed on a chimney this is called counter flashing. This counter flashing then overlaps a replaceable piece of material called the base flashing. In the past, strips of lead used for flashing an edge were sometimes called an ‘apron’ which is a term still used for the piece of flashing below a chimney. Over the years many different materials have been used for flashing including birch bark. Flashing has certainly moved on a lot since those days with materials used today including metal, plastic, rubber and impregnated rubber. At ADM Roofing our specialty is lead flashing. When your roof or structure incorporates flashing it has to be carefully engineered and constructed so that water is directed away from the structure and not inside. If flashing is installed incorrectly it can actually direct water into a building leading to all manner of problems such as decay and deterioration. This is where ADM Roofing come in. We are experts at lead flashing with our workmen expertly skilled and experienced to handle any kind of problem to restore your roof and chimney to its original condition.
