Flashing is so important because it helps control and direct the flow of water around openings in your roof. Since water can get into your walls, causing all sorts of damage, as well as mould problems, it’s important that you install flashing when building a new house, or if you are renovating the exterior of your home.

At Lindfield Group, located in Orange, we offer a wide range of standard and custom flashing to meet your specific requirements.

Box Gutters

Given its name because of its place on the roof, usually boxed into the middle or edge. It collects the water and feeds it down through the drainpipe. They are generally hidden by outside walls that are taller than the sheeting or roof tiles, which is why they are a great option if you require concealed gutters. It’s important to use an experienced roofer to install, maintain and clean your Box Gutters to ensure quality and longevity.

Valley Gutters

Designed to suit the angle between two internal slopes of a roof, as well as a return at each edge to decrease possibility of spillage into any roof space. Valley Gutters are often quite shallow, to ensure ease of installation.

Trough Gutters

A very effective gutter, with self cleaning properties and often supported by heavy gauge straps. It is usually built between two roof surfaces, and is available in squashfold, splashback, outfold and infold edges.

Corner Flashing

Used when you need to cover a gap in the sheeting that can occur in the corners of a lot of buildings and structures. The majority of homes or sheds wall cladding stop and restart at the corners, which increase the likelihood of needing to cap, flash or cover the gap or join not just for aesthetic reasons, but also weather proofing.

Apron Flashing

Best used to prevent water from entering where a vertical surface intersects with the roof. Made up of a folded piece of steel and when used in conjunction with a steel sheet roofing, it should lap at least one rib, and for weather proofing, a recommended two ribs.

Foot Moulds

A foot mould is a folded piece of steel mostly fitted to complete the base of a vertical surface, in order to prevent any kind of water penetration. It is mostly used to finish an overhanging canopy or in facades.

Ridge Flashings

Ridge Flashings provide a seal between two slopes and are made from steel that is used over the ridge and give continuous cover to your roof. Depending on the size of the edge break, it should conform to fit the rib height of the roofing that the ridge is attached to.

Barge Capping

Barge capping is a folded sheet that can be used to weather/waterproof the joining between a barge board or fascia and roof sheeting. Depending on the size of the edge break, similarly to Ridge Flashings, it should conform with the rib height where the ridge is attached on the steel roofing.
