The Choices You Have When It Comes to Flashings

Are you in the process of shopping for roof flashings? You need to understand as much as you can about this seemingly minor building part in order to choose the right ones for your structure. You need to learn its function, the materials it comes in, the kinds there are, etc.

To begin with, a flashing is a waterproof material that works to divert or redirect water to a lower point on the exterior of a building. It’s somewhat of a transitional building material that connects something that’s waterproof to something that is not. You usually see them where the roof butts up against a wall.

We generally think of flashings as pieces of material to attach to the roof and roof components such as chimneys and skylights, but they also work with decks, doors, windows, etc. They can be made of a variety of materials such as galvanised steel, tin-coated steel, copper, lead, and even rubber membrane.

They usually need cutting and bending. Where seams occur, they need to be made waterproof. Metals can simply be soldered at the seams to create a waterproof seal. Rubber membranes, on the other hand, come with special solvents that achieve the same effect.

Flashing manufacturers produce standard and custom flashings. They also typically manufacture other related products such as flashing accessories and gutters. The following are some of the standard flashings made for common roofing profiles:

  • Angle flashing – This is an L-shaped flashing bent at 90 degrees.
  • Apron flashing – This is located at the juncture of the top a sloped roof and a vertical instalment (wall, chimney, etc.)
  • Barge flashing – This caps the gap between the wall sheeting top and the roof cladding side edges.
  • Ridge flashing – This refers to triangular shaped tiles covering up the joins where two roof faces come together.
  • Tile flashing – This is the transition flashing between a steeper tile roof and a lower pitched metal roof.
  • Valley flashing – This is sheet metal used to line the valley of a roof.

In Australia, the common flashing materials available are galvanised iron, aluminium, stainless steel, copper, and zinc. The popular brands to use are Colorbond and Zincalume. Here’s a word of caution on aluminium flashings, though: Beware of using them in contact with masonry since the chemicals in the mortar corrode aluminium, which will then lead to leaks.
