leak in chimney water comes threw brick


Yes. Ed is a bit wordier than me. And he's correct.

About the caulk. There needs to be space between the block and the wood. With space, any moisture that gets in stays in the block and doesn't get the wood wet. The caulk will redirect any moisture and it prevents the wood and the block from breathing.

Your whole problem lies in the flashing.

there is backwater seams on your flashing (each layer should overlap the previous layer from the bottom up).. where as in you picture, the underlying layer is sticking out. not to mention that the step flashing your mason did is on the outside of the shingles and not the inside.

The picture somebody posted of the copper flashing will give u an idea how it should be done, but in his picture it wasn't done correctly either. Each piece of flashing (step) should be put down with each shingle so as to cover all previous nail heads and make it so thats there is no water for the water to leak.

as for the taping off of the other 2 vents, i would recommend buying 3 caps for all the vents so that u can allow any gases to escape that might build up, and keep the water out at the same time.

Maybe you need eyeglasses,and shouldn`t comment when you`re wrong,what`s annoying is helping someone out ,and then have someone come run their mouth about things they wrongly assume,and then have the audacity to tell people what to do,I got two words for you,and they`re not merry christmas

some people don`t know how to say sorrry,I was wrong(for mgc)



[quote=the roofing god;91211]I disagree,and doubt you would spend less doing parts of the job

Time is money.not to mention the purchase of new flashing.
My intention was to save the HO some$,yours seems to be an ego thing.

not ego at all,I just do a complete job is all,and you wouldn`t pull the flashing out of the brick ,you would cut it flush with a grinder,,,and I do feel it`s a better job ,and less tedious to do the whole thing,and I would be concerned with his warranty there as I WOULDN`T WARRANTY ANYTHING ,WHERE OTHER PEOPLE`S WORK CAN CAUSE A PROBLEM,ESPECIALLY SINCE i DON`T SEE ANYTHING THERE WORTH SAVING
