Can I Caulk this Flashing - Pics Attached


Iíd be up there with a hose. If the step flashing is there and in good shape and all there is to do is replace and install the counter properly then Iím not seeing $3,200. But I aint no roofer, what do I know.

Iím a little surprised by omegaís response suggesting more goop as the fix .

Well you do have to consider that even with new metal it is going to have to be "gooped"... The problem in this situation is the mounting..

And I would guess that with that $3200 we are talking about more flashing than just these two areas.. Also wood shake roof it is probably steep, requiring setup. Also sheets of copper are expensive now days and if you want it done right grinding out that mortar takes time..

If it all has failed then re-do it... Other then that bend and pin the metal back and caulk with Vulkum..

Based on the picture, I would say that it will be better if you just spend money to have it inspected by a professional builders.

Using a hose to find holes sounds like you'll cause more damage than you'll prevent. That crack in the brick coupled with the delaminated flashing is definately one source of water infiltration. Correctly installed step flashing requires no caulk...
