Custom Flashing and Trim
What is the best way to finish off that new roof and give it the look you really want? Have custom flashing and trim installed. Flashing and trim are what give the roof its finished look and provide that extra layer of protection against the outside elements. Don’t stop at the functional aspects of these parts of your roof. Take the opportunity to install custom designed sheet metal flashing and trim.
What is Flashing and How Does it Work?
A roof deck can have many protrusions and joints that are part of the panels that are covering it. In order for your roof to function properly, all of those joints need to be covered and sealed in order to keep the elements off your roof deck and out of your building. This is where flashing comes in.
Flashing is installed anywhere there is a joint between panels or a protrusion sticking up through the panels such as a skylight or a chimney. The flashing is used to provide a seal around those areas and allow the roof panels to expand and contract as they are exposed to heat and cold.
Flashing is made of angled strips of metal that overlap in the direction that will keep water from accumulating inside of them. Water, snow and wind flow over the flashing and into the gutters instead of flowing under the panels and onto the roof decking.
What about Trim?
Roofing trim is added to roofing panels to give the roof a finished look. It can also be used to connect roofing panels to soffit or other features of the exterior of the building.
