Window flashing acts as a seal and protects the interior structure from water damage. Made up of sleek, modern material, flashing is designed to sit under the roofing components and is arranged to direct water from the roof to the built-in guttering system. Recessed flashing provides an even more streamlined finish as the window is installed deeper into the roof. Additionally, the weather-tight seal is made up of material that minimises the risk of condensation. Roof windows, dormers, vents, and chimneys are primary leakage targets thoroughly covered during the installation. The benefit of flashing extends to protecting the roof’s structure from long-term damages inflicted by moisture.
Flashing strips are largely manufactured in metal and also mass-produced in other materials such as rubber, plastic, sheet metal, and lead to match varying sets of budgets, material preferences, and roofing material. Moulded vinyl, vapour barrier, drip cap, and flashing tape form most roof window flashing design categories.
Besides sunlight, the soothing sounds of rain are pleasant to experience through roof windows, and the same experience runs the risk of being ruined with water leakages through the area skirting your roof windows.
