What is Roof Flashing?

In order to protect your home and roof from water damage, impermeable metal sheets are placed on roof joints. These metal sheets are called flashing and they are very important. They are a necessary component of a well-maintained roof because they prevent water from seeping into the vulnerable areas where it can do the most damage to your home. Ensuring that your flashing is installed correctly now can save you from considerable trouble down the road.

If your roof’s flashing is in disrepair, or if you have any other roofing needs, the Austin roofing contractors at AAA Mustang roofing can help you fix or replace your roof.

Contact us at 512-650-9866 to learn more about what we can do for you.

When Flashing Goes Bad

Flashing is made from metals that can, under certain circumstances, go bad over time. Most problems arise when flashing becomes loose or becomes oxidized. Flashing made of lead can last up to 500 years, but it is dangerous to have because lead is poisonous in large doses. Commonly used flashing materials include:

  • Aluminum
  • Stainless Steel
  • Copper
  • Zinc Alloys

These materials should be good for up to 20 years. Luckily, many flashing problems are easy for professional roofers to fix.

I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
