Roof Repair and Replacement by PJ Fitzpatrick

PJ Fitzpatrick is the neighborhood roof repair and replacement specialist for homeowners in Delaware Valley. One of the most common things we do is repair roof flashing. The flashing on your roof is important because it protects your home from water, snow, ice, and other damaging elements by sealing vulnerable areas on your roof. There are many types of flashing, but here is some important information about gutter apron flashing you need to know.

Gutter Apron Flashing Explained

Located along the gutter line, this type of flashing closes the gap between the roof sheathing and the fascia trim board. This piece of roof flashing is equipped with a special drip edge that strengthens the material and prevents water drainage from damaging your home. When we install the flashing, we will make sure it is properly overlapped to prevent the formation of voids. Water will flow directly into your gutters, and pests won’t be able to enter your attic thanks to this flashing.

How is Gutter Apron Flashing Installed?

The installation process of apron flashing is simple. This special type of flashing is attached to your roof’s sheathing under the starter shingles. Next, the shingles are lifted, and the apron is attached using roofing nails. Although the process is only two steps, you will see the best results when you have the apron professionally installed.

When Should Gutter Apron Flashing Be Replaced?

If you are getting a new roof, this is an excellent time to have your flashing replaced. New flashing can last for several decades, and having it replaced along with your roof is much more cost-effective than making multiple repairs throughout the years. We use the best quality products paired with our expert-level roof repair knowledge to deliver a final result that will last a lifetime.
