One of the leak-prone problem areas of your roof is the chimney. If improperly installed and not covered with flashing, water can infiltrate your house through the crack between roof and chimney. Chimney flashing is applied at the base of the chimney with a continuous sheet of metal so that water runs around this problem spot and cannot enter your home.
Joe Ritchie can install the right cap and flashing for you, stopping leaks and keeping your home safe!
Roof Flashing: Roof Protection In A Flash
Intersections of your roof, corners where one part of the roof joins with another, are a problem area for roof leaks. Installing roof flashing will prevent water from collecting in one place and penetrating the fine seams where the wood joins together. Roofing work that includes flashing, which is standard with all Joe Ritchie roof installations, involves placing a plate of galvanized metal over these potential leak spots, preventing water penetration.

The Joe Ritchie team will come to your home to find and fix roof leaks, often right on the spot before they become a serious problem.
