Why Is Flashing Important?
If your flashing is not performing as it should be, water will leak into your roof’s structure. This leakage can cause considerable damage that might demand expensive repairs in the long run.
Flashing reduces the risk of leaks in your home and prevents related issues, such as the development of mould, moisture damage, or harm to the structural integrity of your home.
However, problems with flashing can exist long before homeowners begin to notice that something is wrong. For that reason, if you know that there is a problem with your flashing, you should act quickly to protect your home and minimise the cost of repairs.
After all, repairing or replacing your flashing is much cheaper than replacing the entire roof!

What Is Roof Flashing?
Flashing is a flat, thin material used to prevent water from entering the openings and cracks in a roof. It’s typically placed underneath the shingles to redirect water away from your windows, chimneys and roof valleys to a different location.
Most flashing for roofs is made from metals, with copper, aluminium and stainless or galvanised steel being popular choices.
If you need flashing installed in your home, especially if it has to go around structures such as doors, gutters, windows and chimneys, you should turn to the professionals. The NZ Spouting Team has extensive experience installing, repairing and maintaining flashing. For a no-obligation quote, contact us at 0800444899.

All About Roof Flashing
Flashing directs water away from the areas in your roof that are most vulnerable to leaks.
For this reason, the flashing for your roof must be installed appropriately to get the greatest return on your investment. Professional installers will ensure that your roof flashing in NZ will protect your roof, extend its lifespan and prevent damage to your home’s structural integrity.
Your flashing should be checked annually, ideally as part of a regular roof maintenance servicing. That way, you will be able to ensure that the metal’s integrity is holding and that the flashing is working as it should be. Routine inspections can help prevent future roofing problems before they start.
