The roofers finally came back after a call to the insurance company. They used "L" shaped flashing pieces approx. 4"x8" and stepped them up the side of the chimney and around the back. A piece of flashing would go on then the row of shingles over the top. The next flashing went on top of the previous shingle and the next row of shingles on top of that flashing. This sequence continued until the back side of the chimney. The backside was stepped up to the point in the middle.

The vinyl was removed around the bottom for the flashing to get underneath. The roofers ended up pulling the corner vinyl trim out and bending it out of shape. The company's siding people came out and re-did the corner trim piece. I think each separate crew kept the other crew in business. The tarp on the chimney is gone and the roof in not leaking.

You have another problem awaiting being there is no housewrap on that chimney. Nice pics. lol I see they hire the best "workers", and use the thinest possible flashing they can buy.

I hope it holds for you, but next time get someone qualified.

This is what the insurance companies are paying big bucks for. If you want anything done right now-a-days, you gotta do it yourself. Thanks for the tip on the wrap, I'll add it to the list of things to do and strip the vinyl off some day.

mdavis103. it sounds like lots of people are getting second hand labor when it comes to roofing. I am in the sameboat. I had my house built in 03 and I have had water in my basement from the chimney for 3yrs. now. I have tried to get something done by the builders. But no luck. they told me "I dont believe the house is 8 years old and you have just seen water comming in now". I have NO flashing around my chimney and I have done the same as many caulked to try to help. But, NOOOOO help. Where is the justice in the world. I am not a skilled pro on the topic but I am out of things I can do. other than get to sueing them. Any suggestions from anyone? PLEASE. Oh by the way. The folks that built my home where TK constuction out of IN> & IL. don't hire them......
