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?

Painting metal flashing around chimney


Why do you want to paint it? Rust?

Painting metal flashing around chimney


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.
