What is flashing?

Before we get too far into the article, we first must cover the fundamental question. What is flashing? Flashing is a material that is secured under the roof’s shingles or tiles. The materials add a layer of protection to your home or building against damaging water penetration. When you upgrade the material to copper, you now have one of the most reliable and longest-lasting flashing products available.

So what is it about copper flashing?

Copper flashing not only protects your home or commercial building from potentially costly water damage, but it also offers beauty, low maintenance, and some of the longest lasting results. If that wasn’t enough, this type of flashing could also increase the value of your home!
