Installing & Repairing Roof Flashing in Columbia
At Residential Roofing Services, we want you to know everything about the function of your roof so you are inclined to keep up on maintenance and repairs. Roof flashing is something that is installed around every feature on the roof. It directs any water away from the openings and down into the gutters.
For your repair, we highly recommend you contact the professionals. Our roof flashing installation experts have years of experience making sure residential and commercial buildings are properly protected from the rain. Whether you are re-roofing your home or completing some repairs for your business, let us help you ensure the job gets done right.
Protect Areas Prone to Water Damage
There are some different types of flashing that you may want to be familiar with. Our contractor will explain them to you, but knowing a little bit ahead of time doesn’t hurt.
- Metal – Metal flashing is often used around windows, particularly dormer windows. Vents are also commonly found with metal flashing. This is perhaps the most durable choice, but also costs a little bit more. When you think about it, paying a little more for a more durable product could actually save you money in the long run. Your metal flashing might be stainless steel or copper.
- Plastic – Depending on the wear and tear your roof goes through, plastic might be a good option for your flashing. It is less expensive than metal and is generally made from a PVC base. It is often a great product for skylights.
As you speak with our experienced contractor, you can determine together which type will be the best for the style of the roof and the climate it is in.
