  • Install new chimney flashing’s
  • Install exposed metal valleys (using a copper color metal)
  • Replace faulty low-slope roof system
  • Remove gutters
  • Replace damaged fascia

Old chimney flashing’s are a common source of roof leaks.  You can see the previously installed step flashing method.  This is a great type of flashing method commonly found during the original install of the brick.  The best alternative during a roof replacement is a flashing/counter flashing combo.  Here you can see the wall flashing installed to the sides of the chimney.  A bit of black paint added to hide the new shiny galvanized wall flashing.

The owner opted to use the exposed metal valley method to compliment the older character of this home. Many years ago, copper was a common valley metal choice for upper scale homes.  Now days the cost of copper can be prohibitive to use in larger quantity (such as with valley’s).  After cost comparing material choices with the homeowners, the decision was made to use a copper color metal instead.

Here is where the black paint comes into play. Counter flashing does not always completely conceal the bright new galvanized wall flashing.
