brick chimney on the side of a brick house


Leaking through the flue opening, or are there cracks in the mortar and/or liner?

It should be counter flashed. "L" shaped flashing under the shingles and up the brick and top flashing bedded in the chimney mortar down over the shingle molding.
Chimneys can leak a number of other ways, though.
