Why is Roof Flashing so important?

Advice on roof flashing

This is used to protect the weak areas or potential weak areas of flat and sloped roofs from becoming damaged, which can make the roof vulnerable to flooding, it is generally placed along roof edges, some walls, valleys, and some chimneys, this flashing can also be made from a variety of materials including aluminium some copper, certain steel, and felts..

This flashing will provide an impervious water tight membrane to roofs that collects any water dripping through and then redirects it back out of the roof… then not only does this then reduce the risk of leaks in the home, it also prevents moisture problems taking root..this may cause long term damage to your roof, and house.
