Replacing or installing roof flashing
How, what and why?
Installing or replacing your roof flashing is usually done at the same time as replacing or installing a complete roof. Your roof flashing is the connection between the roof and the wall, to prevent leaks. Installing roof flashing is required. For this reason, it is a standard part of our quote. The roof flashing gives your home a certain look. Based on examples from practice, we can advise you on the different possibilities with the best price-quality ratio.
What are roof flashing?
A roof flashing is the entire finish of the outer edges of your roof.
A roof flashing has multiple components. The roof trim is the finishing strip between the eaves board and the roof flashing, which makes the entire roof flashing watertight. Additionally, it is possible to create decorative finishes using roof moldings.
A roof flashing determines the style of your home and is important for a watertight roof. Thanks to the roof flashing, no moisture can penetrate under the roofing material from the side. How you want to shape the roof flashing is up to you. VIP Dakservice or an architect can advise you on this. It is also possible to be inspired at our head office in Hedel. Then you can view and compare all materials. We will also show you our completed projects from which you can possibly draw inspiration.
What materials are commonly used in roof flashing?
The visible parts of a roof flashing are the eaves and fascia boards. The eaves (large visible boards) are mainly made of wood, but plastic or even foam are also options. The fascia boards are often made of aluminum. This can now be colored and is the cheapest material. However, a zinc fascia board is also possible, and these are now also available in colors.
Aluminum fascia boards are the cheapest and zinc fascia boards are the most expensive. In between, there is also the option for plastisol, a PVC coating. This is very flexible, lightweight, resistant to a wide range of weather conditions, and has a lifespan of 40 years. Let yourself be inspired at our headquarters in Hedel to see and compare the different materials.
What does roof flashing cost?
A roof flashing is made up of multiple parts. The simplest version is the roof flashing on a flat roof, where you can simply finish the edge with a roof trim. In this case, you only need a roof trim. Often, a new roof is chosen with an overhang, which is nicely finished with a soffit, eaves and roof trim at the corner.
