Keep Water Out With Expert Flashing Repairs & Waterproofing Services From Sleep Easy
If you’ve spent any amount of time looking at the chimneys and roofs of homes throughout the greater Kansas City area, you know that not all flashing jobs are of equal quality. Some flashing is made of galvanized metal or aluminum, which can rust through, and some chimneys are even flashed with tar! Neither is an attractive, effective, or long-lasting option for preventing leaks in this vulnerable area. Instead, chimneys should be flashed with stainless steel or copper sheets that are strategically placed, smooth, flat, and watertight.
Has your flashing failed? Have you discovered water stains on the ceiling or walls near your chimney? Is your flashing rusted, dented, or lifted away from the roof or chimney? The time to schedule repairs is now. The longer you wait, the more water damage you’ll have when you finally do make repairs — and water-damaged dry wall and framing is costly to replace! Whatever the issue may be, don’t worry — the experienced and Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified team here at Sleep Easy will take care of it for you.
Fast & Effective Repairs — Guaranteed
We specialize in flashing replacement and use high-quality stainless steel and copper flashing to make sure water stays out. We also waterproof and repair split, tarred over, cracked, or damaged flashing with FlashSeal, an elastomeric flashing sealant that carries a 7-year warranty. Not only does it stop and prevent leaks around chimneys, stacks, and vents, but FlashSeal also dries to a black, brown, or white finish to seamlessly blend with your roof or chimney.
How’s your flashing looking? The best way to detect leaks and damage in the early stages is to make sure you’re keeping with the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) recommendations and scheduling an inspection with a CSIA-certified chimney sweep every year. We’ll carefully inspect and evaluate your flashing and let you know if it’s time for repairs or new flashing.
