Flashing is so important because moisture is your roof’s arch nemesis. Living in Florida, we get to enjoy nearly year-round tropical weather which is great for us, but not so great for our roof. Roof flashing is a piece of metal that covers joints, edges, and gaps in the roof to prevent leaks. Over the years, flashing has been improved and is now very efficient and cost-effective.

metal-roof Flashing can be made out of:
  • Stainless steel
  • Lead
  • Rubber
  • Copper
  • Zinc Alloy
  • Galvanized Steel
  • Aluminum
These materials can’t be used interchangeably. Some roofing materials go together better than others. When looking for the right roof flashing, you’ll need to take into considering lifespan, durability, malleability, and how the material interacts with the rest of your roofing materials.

Picking the right flashing can be a challenge. To discuss your roofing options and to learn more about roof flashing, give Batterbee Roofing a call today at 352-504-4441.
