USA: Roof Flashing Manufacturers
ABOUT ROOF FLASHING
Roof flashings are sheets of metal or plastic which are designed to direct water away from parapet walls, valleys, chimneys, vent stacks, skylights, and places where dormers and other walls meet a sloping roof. Roof flashing is also needed along the edges of a roof at the gable wall. Drip edge flashing is used along the edges of a roof to prevent water from wicking back under the shingles. Special flashing is needed in climates where ice dams occur.
The most common type of flashing for roofs is roll flashing. This is available in aluminum, copper, and galvanized steel. It is available in widths from 6 inches to 20 inches, and in lengths of between 10 feet and 50 feet. Other types of flashing include corner flashing, which can be continuously bent around the corner of a roof, and pre-bent flashing. There are also multi-part pre-engineered flashing systems in which the parts clip together.
