Painting metal flashing around chimney
 
What is the best way to paint the metal flashing around the top of a chimney, or is it better to replace?

Why do you want to paint it? Rust?

abelsu 05-17-2007 12:38 PM

yes, rust, and stains

I'm not expert on chimneys, but isn't the flashing around the top part of a metal liner that goes into the chimney?

At any rate, remove the rust and prime with a rust inhibiting primer then paint with a quality paint.
