Sheet metal flashing accessories are a form of weatherproofing that shields chimneys and vents against water. Commonly made from sheet metal, roof flashing accessories can include rubber and other synthetics. Proper roof flashing will capture and discharge water into a drainage system to avoid puddles and roof failure. Roof flashing materials may be concealed or exposed to the elements. Exposed roof flashing is usually comprised of sheet metal made from aluminum, copper, treated galvanized steel, zinc alloy, stainless steel, among others. Materials adjacent to roofing accessories should not react chemically to them as corrosion and rust will occur.
Flashing Accessories come in a number of forms including Roof Flashing:
- Roof flashing can be placed around objects protruding from a roof such as pipes or chimneys. Flashing Accessories can also be used at seams or joints along with the edge of a roof.
- Wall flashing is commonly used to keep water from penetrating the wall. Wall flashing is commonly found at structural points, and interruptions in the wall such as windows or doors.
- Sill flashing is usually concealed flashing found under windowsills or doors preventing water to enter at these points.
- Base flashing usually incorporates through-wall flashing and is found at the base of the wall and uses weep holes to allow water to escape. Base flashing can be used where a roof intersects a wall or at the building grade.
Careful engineering and construction must be incorporated into the manufacturing of flashing accessories so that water is actually diverted away and not into a structure. Improper installation can result in water intrusion and mold.
