Roofing Around A Chimney

Roofing Around A Chimney

In roofing, each house is unique and requires special attention to areas that are considered leak prone, which includes chimneys. A chimney can be found in different locations on a roof, which each require different attention, to ensure water does not penetrate the roof line. A chimney in the middle of a roof, at the bottom of a roof, or in a valley all require special techniques to ensure long lasting water protection.

Chapman Construction specializes in properly sealing chimneys with step flashing, counter flashing, and in some cases building custom valleys to divert the water flow. The building up of the roof line, is called a Cricket or saddle. This new ridge is added to a roof to keep water from pooling up against the chimney, where it would be more likely to leak inside the home.
