Roof flashing is thin strips of metal that is sealed with tar and is used to protect your roof’s most vulnerable parts from water intrusion. Flashings typically cover areas around your chimney and in your valleys of roof system. Ruined flashings mean that your roof is exposed to outside conditions and can’t offer the correct level of perfection to your roofing system.
