Roof flashing is a material that covers the openings on your roof so that water cannot enter into your home. Its job is to prevent moisture from sneaking into the areas where gaps are present on the roof, such as (1) roof valleys, (2) skylight openings, and (3) chimneys.
There are many terrific choices in material for your roof flashing. Copper, aluminum and galvanized steel are common flashing materials found on roofs throughout Florida. Aluminum and galvanized steel are affordable choices and will stand up well throughout the life of your roof. Copper, while often pricier, is a sturdy choice that lends a touch of style to a roofing system.
