Roof Flashing Repair

Roof flashing plays such an important part in maintaining the waterproofing of your home that it’s important to get it fixed as soon as you notice anything unusual (typically storm damage or animal damage can impact it’s ability to do it’s job).

It’s also really important that you don’t do this job yourself! Flashing improperly installed can actually direct water into a building.

Flashing is usually of a sheet metal such as lead, aluminium, zinc or copper – our preferred choice is lead due to it’s durability, but we’re able to provide a choice of materials to suit your home or taste.

We’re experts in all aspects of properly applying and repairing flashing, including counter flashing (on chimneys for example), and aprons.

If you need your roof flashing repaired, please give us a call now, or fill in the contact form on the site.
