The Importance of Flashing
Replacing your roof, siding or windows is a necessity sooner or later and a great way to protect your investment in your home. If flashing isn't done during installation of these items, however, you are wasting your time and money.
Proper taping and flashing installation is vital to waterproofing your home with roof, siding or window replacement and also with repairs. When installing James Hardie siding, we use a two-step flashing process during installation that makes it 100% watertight.
