This is the process in which thin pieces of material are installed to prevent water passage into a structure. Flashing is also known as weatherproofing and is used on chimneys, walls, door openings, and vent pipes to prevent mold and water damage. The main purpose of this is to protect the inside of your home from water and other severe weather. Water and severe weather can have destructive tendencies. Flashing can prevent water penetrations that can occur through gravity, surface tension and wind pressure. We can help you find the best flashing solution in which we design and develop the proper fix for your project.
