chimney


Just bought a house and during our inspection we noticed daylight around the chimney. The Home inspector said it doesnt appear to be leaking but I should have a roofer check it out. The roofer tells me the chimney is not leaking the day light Im seeing is a reflection from the "step flashing" does this sound right

Yes. The light gets in where the metal overlaps the brick. Sometimes this area is caulked with clear caulk which still allows light in. If it's not leaking, it's hunky dory.

Looks like leaking around the chimney - roofer says it is the chimney itself Salvatorparadise Roofing/Siding 6 03-07-2008 04:12 PM
