Repairing Chimney Flashing Easily

Once you have completed the inspection of the chimney, take a look at the flashing and shingles around the chimney. If the shingles around the chimney are cracked or have holes then repairing the chimney flashing area is easily accomplished by sealing the shingles and the chimney flashing with an elastomeric roof coating. If you do not want unsightly black patches on your roof use a clear elastomeric roof coating designed for asphalt shingles.

Before applying the elastomeric roof coating, fill the cracks and holes with clear exterior elastomeric caulk. Next, following the manufactures instructions apply the elastomeric roof coating.

Although the best time for repairing chimney flashing is in warmer weather, some elastomeric roof coatings and caulk can be applied in below freezing and even on a damp roof surface.
