Does this chimney flashing look correct?


I just had the flashing redone on the rear chimney on my house and I'm concerned the flashing isn't on properly as you would expect from a reputable roofing company.

It may be installed correctly, but is is not visually pleasing to the eye. The flashing is not laying tightly to the brick, it should be.

Another pic from further away would help. There are far to many folks here that have posted chimney flashing details fit for an art gallery...i will let them point you in the right direction. To me, it could be correct but i know its sloppy.

Gutter spike needs some attention also, its a bit loose

While it's not going to make the cover of Counterflashing Quarterly, what's in those pictures appears to be technically correct. There should be a minimum of 2-3" front lap on each step

As previously stated, if each piece is overlapped properly, it should work. I would advise pop riveting the pieces more tightly together.

Ah, I remember as a "worked up" teenager, finding these hidden under my brother's mattress. Some great centerfolds!

Is it just me or does anyone else get REALLY agitated when your crews/roofers scratch the he** out of the top of the gutters and are too lazy to set those gutter spikes flush ?

It could be that that spike just can’t hold on to the rotted mush anymore, caused by all of the wind driven rain that’s been blasting into that open door flashing for years.
