Roof Flashing To Protect Your Baton Rouge Roof From Moisture Intrusion
The integrity of a roof's flashing is important to any Baton Rouge home. It is explicitly installed to protect your roof's joints, angles, or corners from water and moisture. If not correctly installed or maintained, the ineffective flashing can cause your own to undergo severe water damage. If you find leaks or water spots on your ceiling, there's a good chance that your roof flashing needs repair. At that point, you will have to call an experienced roofing contractor to fix the flashing before the water damage ends up costing you more in roof replacement.

Roof Flashing Contractor
At Marcell Construction our team of expert flashing contractors will assess the condition of your roof's flashing before providing you with the best recommendations and a list of options for your home. We offer several types of flashing you can purchase to reinforce your roof, which include:
- Base Flashing
- Sill Flashing
- Wall Flashing
- Step flashing
This type of flashing is installed at the point where the roof intersects the wall of your home. Base flashing incorporates through-wall flashing and has small holes that allow water to escape.
Wall flashing is installed along openings in the wall like windows and points of structural support. It prevents water from getting in, but it also directs water that has gotten into the wall back outside.
This flashing is installed under the window sills and door thresholds. Perfectly concealed, sill flashing can prevent water from entering the house at those points.
Step flashing is a 90° rectangular piece of flashing installed in layers with the shingles to help guide water away from the wall of the house.

Why Your Roof Needs Flashing Repair
Most water issues in the home begin with faulty flashing that's either improperly installed or weathered down. Over time, the seams in your roof's flashing can wear out, especially after being beaten down by harsh weather. Heavy storms can also tear out the flashing, leaving gaps in your roof that eventually allow water to seep into your home. You should have a professional roofing contractor regularly inspect your flashing to make sure it's still working effectively. They can handle any minor repairs or installations before any issues arise, so you can avoid more serious roof repairs and save money.
