Roofing Metal Flashing
Roof Flashing Installation by Sydney Roofing and Gutters
When installing a roof on a new home or renovating an existing roof on an already established property, one crucial requirement is to prevent water from penetrating any external structural elements such as chimneys, windows, skylights and pipes. By installing flashing at the base of these additions and alterations to the roof, you can reduce the likelihood of moisture making its way into the home.
Types of Roof Flashing & Materials
Roof flashing is made from a number of different materials. Most commonly, it’s made of metal or lead that is rust-resistant. It is occasionally made from plastic, roofing felt or rubber.
Barge flashings protect the ends of roofs from water entry especially wind-blown water.
Barge roll flashings are designed to maintain that older heritage style look.
Ridge flashing or capping prevents water and wind from getting underneath your roofing tiles or sheets through the highly exposed and vulnerable ridge seam.
Sydney Roofing and Gutters can supply all the materials you need for an effective valley flashing system that meet the Australian building code and keep your home safe and dry.
Apron flashings protect that vulnerable and often neglected area where a roof meets a vertical wall.
Box gutters not only serve as a type of flashing but also have a critical drainage function.
Box gutters are somewhat similar in design to valley flashings and are found where roofing planes meet or in the gap between a wall and the roof.
Sydney Roofing and Gutters have the expertise and experience to help you choose the best box guttering for your needs.
Roof flashing for skylights – generally, skylights possess their own integral flashing.
Lead Free – Self Adhesive
Fast Flash – it’s the perfect lead-free, flexible, self adhesive flashing for covering those tricky roof applications. It is made from aluminum stretch netting cast in flexible polymer.
Fast Flash is one of the best of the new generation of environmentally friendly sealers.
Fast Flash is ideal for sealing around dormer windows, chimneys, roof valleys, ventilation caps, solar panels, skylights, and wall abutments.
Sydney Roofing and Gutters can also supply custom designed flashings for those special jobs.
It’s far better to get flashing custom made rather than trying to adapt a pre-existing type of flashing.
