Making Your New Roof Last: Metal Flashing

When replacing your roof it is very important to replace all metal flashings. Many roofing companies in Seattle will replace your roof shingles but leave the old metal flashings behind. This causes two problems: First, the roof is leak prone in the areas with old roof flashings. You may have a new roof, but your metal flashings are old. Second, old flashings are unsightly and will detract from the finished look of the home.

One flashing that is commonly not replaced by Seattle roofing companies is roof to wall flashing, also called roof to wall metal.
