Everything You Need to Know about Flashings

Flashings are commonly used in a wide range of different buildings, including residential places as well as commercial building structures. Basically, a flashing is a sheet of thin metal that is impervious and is designed to prevent water from passing into a structure through a joint. Joints are generally the most exposed parts of any building structure, and water is most likely to enter the building at those points. As a result, a flashing can be installed to prevent water access. Before flashing products were commonly available, carpenters were generally called onto the scene to come up with innovative ways to prevent water from entering a structure.

This included angling the shingles on the roof in a way that prevented water from flowing directly inside, or by placing the chimneys on the ridge of the roof. However, none of these methods was as effective as installing manufactured flashings to prevent water from seeping into the structure. The flashing ideally needs to be manufactured according to the size and the structure of the place. At SAMS Fabrications, we can provide top quality flashings made from resilient metals that will last you for many years to come without any issues.
