ROOF FLASHING

We specialize in insurance restoration on residential homes.

WHAT IS
FLASHING.

Flashing is used over joints in roof and wall junctions. This diverts water to prevent moisture from seeping in, causing damage. Most flashing is made of metal L Flashing (5 by 5) which is the most common type of flashing in Florida homes. Flashing is one of the most important components of your roof, and is vital to maintaining the structural integrity. Existing vent flashing, metal edgings, drain outlets, collars and metal counter flashing shall not be reinstalled where rusted, damaged or deteriorated.

REPLACING FLASHING.

Replacing flashing can be costly and difficult, so many homeowners are reluctant to replace it when the roof is replaced.

When a roof is installed, a layer of tar is laid to adhere the shingles to the flashing. Over time, that tar hardens and crystallizes becoming incredibly difficult to remove. If shingles need to be replaced, that tar has to come off as well. It is virtually impossible to remove all of the tar without damaging flashing.

At A.J. Wells Roofing and Construction,
we replace flashing with every
roof replacement.

We do not do this to rack up the cost or to inflate our bottom line. We in fact do this because our reputation is on the line with every job we do. Nothing is more important to us than leaving your home with a roof that will last it’s full life span and survive the harsh conditions Florida can throw at it. We cannot guarantee the work of anyone that has worked on the roof before us, so we make sure it is done right when WE do it. We pride ourselves on providing the best workmanship with the best materials on the market.

Some of the most common flashing problem areas are chimneys and roof to wall intersections.
