If you live in a climate where it rains frequently, flashing is an absolutely essential component of your roof.

Without flashing, its possible for water to penetrate the roof of your home, seeping into the walls and causing irreparable structural damage. Flashing refers to the impervious material that helps form a weather-resistant barrier to your roof, protecting the interior of your home from unpredictable weather elements.

Most flashing is made from rubber, plastic or metal such as copper, aluminum or galvanized steel. It’s designed to decrease water penetration around potential entry points in your home such as chimneys, windows, vent pipes and door openings. Each type of flashing comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.
