Chimneys are notorious for leaking, and the culprit is almost always the sheet metal chimney flashing on Long Island.
Our team of experts can spot problems—simply look for water-stained ceilings or other telltale signs of leaking in the vicinity of your chimney.
You’ll want to install new chimney flashing if it’s missing, rusted through, falling out or completely covered with roofing tar (a typical short-term fix that’s sure to be hiding bigger problems).
It’s also a good time to install new flashing when you put on new shingles because you’ll want it to last as long as the new roofing (25 to 40 years).
We are licensed and insured, and specialize in repairing and installing all types of flashing on Long Island. Give us a call today to see how we can help.
We repair all types of Chimney flashing including aluminum, copper, vinyl, and steel.

Things You Should Know About Your Chimney Flashing:
- What is chimney flashing?
The chimney flashing offers a layer of protection for a home’s roof. It’s your roof that shields you from the snow, wind, sleet, rain, and other elements Mother Nature throws your way. If there is any space present between the chimney and your roof, the elements may make their way inside.
- What to look for in a chimney Flashing Expert?
We would love to say, “just look for the Pro Home logo,” but maybe you live outside of Long Island New York. Rather than just one with a good sense of humor, we advise that homeowners look for a fully licensed company with references to backup their price point. Be sure to look over any company’s google reviews and work placed on their social media before moving forward. Also, it is never a bad idea to get few offers for your chimney flashing project before accepting any quote. Just be sure Pro Home is one of these quotes and you will be in good hands!
Just like all parts of your roofing, the flashing needs to be monitored and maintained. This should be done by a professional you can trust.
- Aluminum flashing
Aluminum is the most popular type of flashing and it is inexpensive. It is also rust resistant.
- Vinyl flashing
Can crack under the harshest of weather conditions and is used mostly in warm weather climates.
- Copper flashing
Copper flashing is lightweight and extremely durable. It will never rust and is aesthetically pleasing, but it is also the most expensive option.
- Steel flashing
It is very strong and very unlikely to ever be corrosive.
- Saddle flashing
Very wide chimneys may need saddle flashing installed because it creates a peak that stops water and snow from building up on your roof and chimney.
