I have a cultured stone covered chimney and recently I found out that there is a leak through the flashing and I need to replace them.
However because it was fully covered with the stone i will have to remove the bottom part of the stone where it meets the roof to be able to install the new flashing.
My question is while the bottom stones are removed would it affect the ones up above causing it to collapse?
Here is a picture of what kind of stone it was on my chimney and the chimney is actually wooden chimney and not concrete.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
