Roof flashing is placed around discontinuities or objects which protrude from the roof of a building (such as pipes and chimneys or the edges of other roofs) to deflect water away from seams or joints and in valleys where the runoff is concentrated.
Flashings are an essential aspect of all building work involving penetrations through the cladding.
Flashings prevent water entering through seams and there are a number of different types of flashing designed according to each specific application.
There are many different types of flashing materials too and the incorrect choice or improper installation may even void your warranty.
Talk to the experts at No1. Roofing and Building Supplies and get it right the first time.
Wall flashing may be embedded in a wall to direct water that has penetrated the wall back outside, or it may be applied in a manner intended to prevent the entry of water into the wall. Wall flashing is typically found at interruptions in the wall, such as windows and points of structural support.
Sill flashing is a concealed flashing placed under windows or door thresholds to prevent water from entering a wall at those points.
ROOF PENETRATION FLASHING
Roof Penetration Flashings are used to waterproof pipes, supports, cables, and all roof protrusions. Stainless steel penetration flashings have proven to be the longest lasting and most reliable roof flashing type.
A structure incorporating flashing has to be carefully engineered and constructed so that water is directed away from the structure and not inside. Flashing improperly installed can direct water into a building.
