Ways to Maintain Your COLORBOND Roof Flashing

Your COLORBOND roof needs flashing to prevent water damage from occurring. It’s a thin but protective tie-in material usually made of COLORBOND or ZINCALUME or copper, It’s definitely a key factor in a long-lasting roof.

Your COLORBOND capping roof flashing has to be maintained well in order for it to do its job. For this reason, it’s important to make a habit of checking on it a few times a year. If you see one that’s loose or has holes, you can be on top of the problem before it becomes a major issue. Anything that requires repair can be addressed in the early stage before any real damage to the flashing or your home occurs.

What are some of the things you can do to maintain your parapet capping roof flashing?

• Lock down – Parapet Capping Roof Flashing can come loose over time. At times, it can even completely come off. It could be that the screws that anchor it into place became loose or pulled out altogether or that the metal around the screw wore away causing the flashing to become loose. A loose flashing is ineffective in its function, so when you notice it, apply the suitable remedy. It could be as simple as tightening the current screws or replacing them with new ones. Make sure you cover the screw heads using roofing cement to seal any possible point of water entry.

• Fix a leaking seam – If you find a leaking seam, you can fix it yourself using roofing cement, provided that the flashing itself had been installed properly. Push the seam down and secure it in place with screws if it needs it. Apply roofing cement along the edges to create a watertight seal.

• Caulk chimney flashing – If the mortar that ties the flashing to the chimney is crumbling, chip away at the cracked mortar with a stone chisel and replace with a fresh layer of caulk.

• Cover holes – Flashing materials are typically designed to resist the elements, but corrosion is still possible. When this happens, you may find small holes on your flashing. A small hole can be fixed by wiping away the corroded edges with a stiff-bristled brush and then covering it up with a piece of flashing that’s several inches bigger than the hole. Secure it on top of the hole with roof cement. Coat over the cover itself with some more roof cement to make it water-tight. Of course, if you don’t like the idea of having a patchwork remedy on your roof, you can simply replace the entire flashing. You can easily order some online from a supplier of Australian BlueScope Steel products. This way, you can expect the lowest prices as well as fast delivery.

There are flashing issues that you can fix yourself, but if you don’t have the know-how, the tools, or even the stomach for heights, it’s best to leave inspection and maintenance to a roofing professional.
