Friday, June 26th, 2020 by Paiden Hutchens


There are many technical aspects to building a solid, well-tempered, and leakless roof, but protrusions are always a trying to make it more complicated. A protrusion can be defined as any part of the home that is built through the roof, so any kind of vent, chimney, or skylight can be considered a protrusion. The issue with these additional are that it creates a perfect place for water to get under the roof, and it requires a unique solution.

Roof Protrusion

These solutions are known as flashing. Klaus Roofing Systems of Carolina knows how important this product can be in the construction of a roof. Many homeowners are not aware that this metal or plastic covering can make or break the construction of a roof. There are also tiers to flashing, for instance a copper flashing may be more expensive but more durable where an aluminum flashing would be cheaper and less durable. Around most of North Carolina, aluminum is a solid choice because it takes paint well and the weather is not extreme enough to justify a more durable product.
