Chimney Flashing Tacoma

Chimney flashing in Tacoma is a prime and common source of roof leaks in the area where the chimney meets the roof, and most frequently as a result of improper installation.

Compared with other types of roof flashings, chimney flashing is considered as the most complex and challenging. We have specialists that are highly skilled in identifying problems and making effective repairs.

According to the Mason Contractors Association, chimney flashing is typically made of one of the following materials:

  • Galvanized steel
  • Galvalume
  • Lead
  • Copper
  • Lead-coated copper

While aluminum, vinyl and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are generally considered as common types of chimney flashing, aluminum is incompatible with masonry mortar, while vinyl and PVC can become brittle in our harsh weather conditions, and are not popular choices for withstanding high temperatures.

Call us for a proper installation to ensure a watertight connection between your chimney and roof.

Chimney Rebuild Tacoma

We are strong proponents of regular chimney maintenance and annual inspection to ensure that it is in first-class working order and operating safely.

With significant deterioration to an extent that repairs are not viable, as specialists in this field we recommend common chimney rebuild services in Tacoma that may include a:

  • Partial chimney rebuild
  • Roofline upward from the area of the roofline flashing
  • Total chimney rebuild involving severe leaning and mortar deterioration

We have highly skilled craftsmen and masonry crews with years of experience and expertise that ensure use of the most durable materials in reconstructing your chimney and restoring it to a complete and safe operating condition.

Call Rainier Roof Restoration if the structural integrity of your chimney has degraded to a point where it is no longer safe! 253-649-6742
