Custom Metal Flashing Fabrication in Dallas/Fort Worth
Metal Flashing Fabrication in Dallas, TX
Roof flashings are typically made of galvanized steel to direct water away from critical areas of the roof. Flashing should always be installed around roof vents, chimneys, dormers, and skylights. Metal flashings guide water to the shingles and rain gutters off and away from the roof. They weatherproof or seal the roofing system. This takes place at all the edges, perimeters, penetrations, walls, and valleys. Flashing is also used in other places where the roof covering is interrupted or terminated.
Metal flashing is essential to every roof system. Custom-fabricated metal flashing is stronger and creates a watertight seal in comparison to pre-fabricated flashings. Custom metal flashing is more precise and will extend the life of a metal roofing system.

Metal flashing can be fabricated from galvanized steel, aluminum, stainless steel, zinc alloy, and copper. Alpine Sheet Metal Systems can fabricate any type of metal flashing to match your existing metal roof type or color. Metal flashing can also be applied to any other type of non-metal roofing system as well. Our metal technicians will fabricate any type of metal flashing to precisely match your roofing system needs.
Although flashings are designed to keep water on top of the roofing panels, sealants and substrates are installed to prevent leaks from rain, snow, and ice. All sealed roofing systems require adequate ventilation systems (soffits) built into their design to prevent moisture accumulation to ensure the health of the entire roofing system and structure.
We design, fabricate, and install any type of metal flashing for any type of roofing system. Contact Alpine Sheet Metal Systems for custom metal flashing.
