What’s Out There

We offer all types of flashing for various types of roofing

different types of flashings

Ridge Flashing

This type of flashing is used to keep edges of roofs and walls waterproof.  For Apex roofs, ridge capping is used on the roof’s ridges. It creates a closing between the sheets to reduce the risk of leaks. It also helps protect the roof through tough weather conditions such as strong wind.

Barge Flashing

Barge flashings are used along the edge of the roof sheet to keep the roof secured to the side of the building. This helps to create a solution that helps protect the roof from water. This is usually used for door trims and the edges of buildings.

Drip Flashing

Drip flashings are designed to be visually appealing for homeowners whilst providing a seal for exposed edges. This type of flashing offers a great performance so is often the first choice for builders and contractors.

Eaves Flashing

Eaves flashing are in the style of a metal strip that is quite thin which is covered into an eaves gutter that comes from a roof. This helps the protect the roof from water overflowing down the outside siding.

Corner Flashing

Corner flashings are basically barge board flashings used vertically instead of horizontally. They are used at the corners of buildings to complete the cladding.

Inverted/Internal Corner Flashing

Inverted/internal flashing) are wall support flashings used when two walls interconnect. Like corner flashings, they are used vertically instead of horizontally.

Quality & Durability

It is important to take into consideration the quality of the flashing, as some types of flashings are more durable than others and some may be more sensitive to weather conditions than other types.

Material of the Sheet

Will the material of my roof sheet work well with the flashing I choose for it? Is the material the right fit for the flashing?  These questions must be taken into consideration when choosing the right flashing for your roof sheet.
