There's a lot of "roofers" around here, that flash chimneys that way -
As pointed out above - sure hope they used step-flashing!

Well, looking at other houses this afternoon on a drive around the city, we can't see anything like this...?
We haven't had much in the way of rain until this week..

No it does not work.

The base flashing is nailed to the roof deck in the upper outer corner with two nails through ice dams flashing. The base flashing is NEVER attached to the chimney. The counter flashing which comes down over the base flashing is NEVER attached to the base flashing WHY?

Because when the chimney gets hot it expands in two planes. Up (Tension)
and sideways (Shear). The base flashing under the counter flashing must be free floating to allow this.

Surface mounting to Brick, especially porous brick is as worthless as a tit on a bull. The best counter flashing is that which is set by the mason fully through the mortar joint, and turned up behind the brick. The best material, Arguably, is 20 oz. Lead coated Copper. Cutting into a joint is often the best you can do when a real through brick flashing was not set, which is pretty much the norm in this day of slap it up and run.

Please, Please, Mister Roof Man! What if my kids go up on the roof and suck on my counter flashing? They will suffer Brain Damage from lead poisoning!!! Dats OK Lady, as soon as day are teenagers, day will be sniffin glue anyway!



Joe, since the back of their chimney is at the ridge, they don't need a cricket. AN apron back there will work too. But I Agree if it was down slope.

"OP" -
Tear down the chimney and try to find some bricklayers/masons that
know what they're doing with flashing - good luck with that!
(Kidding!)
Find somebody that has a "clue" about flashing roof, penetrations.

That's good! (That the chimney is in good shape!)
Then, find someone who knows how to do flashing -
have them take a look at it.
Myself - I would tear off the counter-flashing and see "exactly", what
was done with the step-flashing -
(If they even put in step-flashing!)
It's a bad sign to look up from the attic and see day-light!
Good luck!

Don't see no "over-cuts" on the bottom bricks -
so, probably not.
