flashing job done- pics


We had a problem with a leak around the chimney and after posting here it was determined it was a problem with the old flashing. See here for original post. roof leak question
So we had some people come out and give us their opinion and a quote. They said the same thing that ed the roofer said and their price sounded ok so they did the job yesterday. It ended up raining last night and I couldnt find any signs of water so thats a good sign. Anyways they removed a few feet of old shingles, had to replace some rotted sheeting, put down ice/snow guard, flashing and counter flashing and new shingles. Here are the final pics of the job. Everything look ok?

Well it looks a hell of a sight better,IMO they should have cut the shingle behind the chimney a little higher for better drainage.But it should be fine

I usually leave 1/4" space from the wall for drainage and about an 1"or1 1/2 behind the chimney.

For the most part, it looks good and it is the results tha matter now for you.

I would have liked to see the shingles at the top upper portion of the chimney trimmed back for water to flow a little better.

I still would like to hear that they applied the Grace Ice and Water Shield product from the roof deck onto the vertical rise on all 4 sides of the chimney.

I also would like to know if they installed the sealant behind the sheet metal flashings, prior to securing the fasteners, since the encapsulated sealant does more long lasting water-proofing than the exterior top surface bead.

Those comments are only offered to be looking at this project with a magnifying glass. Do not get alarmed by them at this point. If it is working and remains water-tight, it has done everything you wanted to achieve from it, therefor, Good Job.

The top should have been more 'open' to allow water drainage, IMHO also. Thought you can't tell in the pics, there is an inch of space on both sides at the top corners.

If it's working, OK.
