Also, the downhill corner of the chase looks to be too close to the valley, which will also make correct flashing both more critical and more difficult.

according to my contract they were to put ice shield and membrane around the chimney which is not there in the pics they sent.I have drywall damage on the wall in family room ,bubbling and stains and now Sears is trying to say there may have been a leak prior to their roof installation 2 years ago and that could be the cause yet this all appeared since the water started to leak inside of house 2 weeks ago.they say they will come here on oct. 13 after the engineer I hired sent them an email about her findings which is that the flashing is leaking(at a cost of $500 to me)because Sears basically told me to find and pay someone to fix the leak.I feel this is a breach of contract as they put a new roof on my house and gave me a 5 year warranty and until hiring an engineer they were washing their hands of me.before this roof was installed i had no leak issue ,we just felt that it was time to replace the 15 year old roof so that we wouldn't have to worry about roof issues in the future.i need to correct that I meant chimney saddle not craddle in my earlier posts,I know nothing about roofing thats why i relied on a reputable company like Sears and because of the warranty i thought they would honor in a case like this, boy was i wrong.
