THE DO’S AND DONT’S OF SHINGLE FLASHING AND WHAT TO LOOK FOR
Shingle flashing refers to the thin pieces of weather-resistant metal installed on specific sections of a roof to prevent water from entering the structure. Flashing works by directing pooling water away from the area and is often a feature of roof valleys, chimneys, vents and skylights. Several materials work well for flashing, such as aluminium, copper, lead or galvanized steel. Although flashing is a handy weatherproofing feature, it requires careful installation to be effective.
