Is Chimney Flashing Hard to Install?
Our Dublin chimney flashing services includes the installation. This can be challenging and therefore it is only recommended that installation be carried out by an expert roofer. Chimney corners can be left vulnerable and even with high quality installation urethane chaulking should be applied to cement the water-proofing process. If this is done correctly and by a professional then in future the chaulking may be all that’s needed. If done incorrectly however, it will take more than chaulk and you may end up having to pay for chimney flashing replacement.
