If you have ever done any repair work on your roof, talked with a roofer, or simply walked around a home improvement store, then chances are you have heard the term roof flashing before. If you haven't then the term probably means next to nothing to you. But what is roof flashing? The answer to this, and other questions, is listed below.
Now that you know a little bit more about roof flashing, and just what it does, you can easily see how important it is. Keep this in mind the next time you go on your roof to take a look and you notice a problem with the metal pieces, or if a roofer says that you need to repair it. Simply put, be willing to spend a few dollars to fix this minor piece of roofing equipment, or be ready to spend thousands of dollars repairing the entire roof.
