The Key to a Leak-Proof Roof: The Importance of Step Flashing During Roof Replacements

Welcome back, Charlotte homeowners! Today, we're diving into an essential aspect of roofing that often goes unnoticed but plays a crucial role in keeping your home watertight—step flashing. At Charlotte Ace Roofing, we understand the significance of every roofing component, and we're here to shed some light on why replacing step flashing is a must during a full roof replacement. We recommend using new step flashing during roof replacements.

So, why is Step Flashing Important? Step flashing might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about your roof, but it's a silent hero that protects your home from water infiltration. Step flashing is typically installed around areas where the roof meets a vertical surface, such as a wall or chimney. Its purpose is to create a waterproof barrier and prevent water from seeping into vulnerable areas.

Over time, exposure to the elements and natural wear and tear can cause step flashing to deteriorate. Damaged or aged step flashing can compromise the integrity of your roof, leading to leaks and water damage inside your home.
