How to Fix Step Flashing Problems

By April 18, 2019No Comments

Contractors use step flashing to create a proper seal along the areas where the roof meets the wall. However, even when properly installed these do need repair from time to time.

What to Look For

Here’s how to know if your step flashing might be the problem.

  • Rusted flashing
  • Flashing comes loose
  • Missing flashing

How to Fix It

Flashing that has rusted through will need to be replaced. There is no workaround for that. However, if a loose nail is your problem, simply re-fasten the flashing that is coming loose.

Fixing step flashing problems requires a bit of effort, but it’s worth it in the end.
