Gutter flashing is a versatile waterproofing tool that can be used to keep water away from one area and divert it to another. Flashing can be bought by the foot and is recommended as a way to increase the efficiency of your gutters.
Gutter flashings come in a standard size of 5.08x7.62 cm, 3 metres long. However, depending on the material required, you can have gutter flashings made to fit if water leakage around your roof is a big problem.
Proper gutter installation plays a very important role in the maintenance of your home or business. Most property owners don't spend a lot of time thinking about their gutters, but understanding their importance may prevent you some costly repair bills in the future.
A proper roof flashing should be installed across the roofs bottom edge by the roofer before the shingles are installed. The primary functions of the flashing are to keep water from wicking back under the shingles and to protect the fascia boards from the water dripping off the roof.
A secondary function is to seal the gap from the roofing shingles to the gutter, so the rain water does not dribble behind the gutter. That would cause dry-rot to the wood that the gutter is attached to, causing the gutters to come loose.
