When it comes to your roof, flashing is a critical protector against water damage. The waterproofing material typically features under the shingles or tiles of your roof and keeps water from leaking inside your home. While there are some excellent flashing material options to choose from, copper flashing offers some significant advantages. It is known for its beauty, low maintenance, and long lifespan.
If you are living in Greenwich, Norwalk, Stamford, Darien, Wilton, Westport, and many other cities throughout our Fairfield service area, and want to install copper flashing, rely on Greenwich Roofs. As, unlike many other flashing materials copper doesn’t need to be replaced when you need a new roof, with copper flashing being installed, the resale value of homes also increases. We offer free estimates.
Due to the problems that can arise from poorly installed copper flashing, only trained professionals should perform a copper flashing installation. Copper flashing is installed under shingles or tiles where two roofs intersect or at penetrations in the roof. Copper flashing is typically installed with copper roofing materials such as shingles and gutters. However, it can be installed with other types of roofing materials as well. Homeowners typically install copper flashing on chimneys, valleys, around dormers, or on high-drainage areas of the roofline for greater protection. Trust 'Greenwich Roofs' for your Copper Flashing needs.
One of the most durable materials that can be used for flashing is copper. According to the Center for Resourceful Building Technology, copper roofing materials can last upwards of 100 years. Copper is also excellent in coastal environments as it has a natural resistance to saltwater corrosion. Over time, copper flashing changes color from its bright and shiny new look to a darkened greenish color. This patina gives a roof character.
