Flashing and sealing are crucial aspects of roof waterproofing. Flashing is used to protect vulnerable areas, such as roof penetrations (vents, chimneys, skylights) and transitions (e.g., where the roof meets the walls). Tips include:
5.1 High-quality flashing materials:
Invest in durable flashing materials like copper or aluminum to ensure long-lasting protection.
5.2 Proper installation:
Flashing should be installed correctly to create a watertight seal around penetrations and transitions.
5.3 Sealant selection:
Choose the right sealant for your roof type, as different materials require specific sealants for optimal waterproofing.
