Avalon Roofing is a strong advocate for the use of Liquid Flashing Systems over conventional metal-flashing components.  We find these flashing systems to be a critical component to high-performing roof system, that’s easily maintained, and virtually corrosion resistant.

What is a Liquid Flashing and how does it differ from regular flashings?

  • Regular or Conventional flashings are typically a piece of sheet metal that is used to cover and protect angles, joints, and voids in the building structure from the passage of water.  Conventional flashings are made in various shapes and thickness from the following metals:  aluminium, copper, painted galvanized steel, stainless steel, zinc alloy, terne metal, lead or lead-coated copper.
  • Liquid Flashing Systems are essentially a high-performance, non-hardening, non-shrinking, liquid sealants that are combined with a reinforcing agent such as polyester fabric or fiberglass.  Multiple layers of sealant and fabric are redundantly applied until the detail is 100% waterproof.
